Reports: Talks Between Man Utd & Barca Star Break Down

Manchester United were said to be negotiating personal terms with an FC Barcelona player, but new reports suggest the talks have now broken down.

The Red Devils are still chasing players for Jose Mourinho, who has expressed his frustrations with the transfer window so far.

United were closely linked with centre-back Yerry Mina, who scored three goals for Colombia at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

However, the Sun now suggests that talks between the club and Mina’s representatives have broken down because the player asked for high wages.

It is claimed United have now shifted their focus elsewhere with Toby Alderweireld being the preferred target, despite costing a lot more than Mina.

The Blaugrana defender is still likely to leave this window because Barcelona’s non-European player-slots are filled with Philippe Coutinho, Arthur, Malcom and Arturo Vidal.

Everton and Olympique Lyon have been heavily linked with the defender and it remains to be seen where he will end up.
