Inter to beat Barca to Mina?

Inter could beat Barcelona to the signing of Palmeiras defender Yerry Mina, the agent of the highly-rated Colombian has hinted.

Mina joined the Brazilian side from Colombian side Santa Fe last year, and he has now won nine caps for his country, and despite earlier reports had suggested he already has a pre-agreement with the Catalans, it now appears this may not be the case.

“The only obligation Palmeiras have is to warn Barcelona in case a bid arrives that is superior to their offer: it’s a contractual proposal that starts from June 2018,” agent Mario Mauri told Sky Sport Italia.

“Mina is a powerful player with strong physique, he’s 1.95m tall, yet pretty quick in his movements. He is good at starting moves from the back and can score goals too.

“Mina reminds me of Andrea Barzagli, if we want to make an Italian reference.”

Barca have already signed Brazilian defender Marlon Santos this summer, leaving a move for Mina in the balance.
