Barcelona know they want to see the back of Yerry Mina this summer, they’re just trying to figure out what the exit should look like.
With Clement Lenglet’s arrival from Sevilla considered imminent by the Catalan media, Mina would have even less chances in the blaugrana defence next season.
On top of that, the arrival of midfielder Arthur from Gremio, with the Brazilian presented earlier this week, brings a non-EU place pressure.
Whilst Paulinho returning to China solves that in one respect, Barac are still right on the limit and will need to push Mina out if they want any more non EU players.
Manager Ernesto Valverde is said to have ‘no confidence’ in Mina’s abilities, and Catalan newspaper Sport reports Barca will now assess offers and build a transfer.
The only possible destination named is Everton. Several other clubs have come and gone in the reports, including West Ham and Liverpool, but the Catalan media are convinced Everton are the real deal.
If it’s a loan or a permanent transfer with a buyback option, like the Gerard Deulofeu deal, that Everton want then there shouldn’t be a problem with Mina’s club, the Toffees will just have to convince the player.
