Reports: Barca Set To Sell 2018 WC Defender

Spanish giants FC Barcelona are reportedly looking to sell one of their defenders who is currently taking part in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalan club is considering parting ways with Colombia international Yerry Mina just five months after signing him from Palmeiras.

The centre-back, who cost the Blaugrana €11.6 million (R181.9 million) in January, is currently occupying one of three non-European spots in the Spanish side's squad, and with Brazilian midfielder Arthur expected to join in this window, the Colombian may be sacrificed.

It has been suggested that the Spaniards still have some doubt over the 23-year-old's tactical understanding of the game, and feel that he may not suit the club's playing style in the long run.

Spain international Gerard Pique and France star Samuel Umtiti are currently Ernesto Valverde's first-choice centre-back pairing, while former Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen has proved to be a capable back-up option.

The 2017/18 LaLiga champions have also been linked with Sevilla's Clement Lenglet in this window, and if he is signed, that could mean that writing is on the wall for Colombian defender.

Mina, who scored a goal in his country's 3-0 win over Poland on Sunday, has made only six appearances for the Camp Nou outfit so far – a total of 377 minutes.
