Just when we thought there were no stories about Yerry Mina in the Catalan media today, Mundo Deportivo have just come out with one.
After days of negotiations, the Colombian international’s future could be ‘decided today’.
On August 1st, another report from MD claimed Barcelona are waiting for an offer from Manchester United, while Everton and Lyon are still interested in the defender.
The 23-year-old is represented by his uncle, Jair, who has all the proposals on the table and is now waiting for the Red Devils to take the final step.
Jose Mourinho’s side have ‘practically agreed’ the terms of a contract with the centre-back, but the two clubs are yet to reach an agreement.
Despite interest from other clubs, the 20-time English champions’ are the ‘most appetising’ club for the player and Ernesto Valverde’s side but it is only possible if the Old Trafford outfit decide to pay Barcelona’s €40m asking price.
As a part of the deal, the Spanish champions will not include a buy back option, which was possible if they decided to sell Mina to either Everton or Lyon.
In addition to this, Manchester United executive Matt Judge is already in Barcelona to negotiate with the central defender’s employers to find an agreement.
It’s also worth mentioning that Argentine newspaper Ole believe Mina is now close to signing for the Red Devils. Their interest is based on Marcos Rojo, who it’s stated could be off to Everton for €33m.
