Manchester United To Join Race For Unwanted FC Barcelona Star?
Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly joined the race for an FC Barcelona star who is believed to be surplus to requirements at the Spanish club.
According to French publication RMC, Colombia centre-back Yerry Mina has caught Jose Mourinho interest as he looks to strengthen his options in defence for the upcoming season.
The South American's performances at the 2018 FIFA World Cup has caught the attention of a few clubs over the past few weeks, the most recent being Everton, who have appointed Marco Silva as their new manager.
United's interest in the defender has apparently picked up over the past two days, after Ligue 1 outfit Lyon reportedly submitted a €30 million (R461 million) bid for the Colombian international.
Mina's agent, who is also his uncle, has not hidden the fact that there are a lot of offers for his client, but has repeatedly stated that until they themselves have spoken with the Catalan club about the future, they will not talk to a new club.
The 23-year-old, who bagged three goals at the World Cup in Russia, has played for the Blaugrana on only six occasions since joining them from Palmeiras in January.
