Man Utd and Barcelona close to settling Mina fee

Any chances of a move to Old Trafford though were reported to be in jeopardy after United turned their attentions to Toby Alderweireld and Harry Maguire.

Everton have been chasing the signature of Mina since his exploits at the World Cup and appear to have stolen a march on the likes of Manchester United in the race to sign him.

Manchester United may be forced to turn to either Jerome Boateng or Toby Alderweireld in their pursuit of a new defender this summer after talks with Barcelona's Yerry Mina came to a halt. Maybe with the national team they want him to score goals, and that does also interest us, but, above all, we need him to defend. The Columbian global has agreed on a 5-year contract with the Toffees with Barcelona accepting an offer in the region of €32 million from the Merseyside club.

The Toffees have cash to spend this summer, already highlighted by the £50 million arrival of Richarlison from Watford.

Meghan Trainor: Demi Lovato’s openness has helped me
Meghan Trainor says Demi Lovato's openness about her battles and troubles helped her cope with her own struggles. Earlier this week, Lovato's representative released a statement saying she was "awake and with her family".

With this in mind, United are now facing against time to secure a new central defender and it will be interesting to see whether they are prepared to break the bank for a fresh recruit before Thursday's transfer deadline.

Bringing in Yerry Mina would take their spending to around the £100m mark.

Mina only played six times for Barcelona in his first season in Europe, having joined the Spanish giants from Brazilian club Palmeiras last summer.

Barca now have six centre-backs in their squad and only three - Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and new signing Clement Lenglet - appear guaranteed to be at the club when the season begins. They claim that Mourinho is "in panic mode after the £35m deal for Yerry Mina collapses".
