The Catalan giants are understood to be keen on signing Brazil winger Willian, who is also being chased by Manchester United.

According to Sky Sports, Barcelona have upped the ante in order to beat United to the 29-year-old, having put in a second offer worth €60 million (R930 million) after Chelsea rejected their initial €50 million (R775 million) bid.

However, if Willian does move to the Camp Nou, he would take up one of the club's three non-European slots, which are currently filled by Philippe Coutinho, new arrival Arthur and Yerry Mina.

As a consequence, Barca are looking into either selling or loaning out defender Mina, who scored three goals for Colombia at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The Brazilian reportedly impressed the Blaugrana bosses when the two sides met in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 last season, and feel he would be a great addition to their squad.

However, the LaLiga giants will have to fend off interest from United, with his former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believed to be keen on reuniting with the Brazilian at Old Trafford.
