United turn attention to Barca’s Yerry Mina

Manchester United have turned their interest to Barcelona central defender Yerry Mina as an alternative to signing Harry Maguire, say reports.

Diario Sport say the Colombian international has emerged as a more affordable option for the Red Devils, who have been put off by Leicester City’s €70m valuation of Maguire.

The Blaugrana paid Palmeiras €11.6m for Mina in January, but he has played just five times for the Spanish champions.

The 23-year-old netted three goals in the World Cup as he impressed with Colombia and he has been linked to a host of clubs this summer including Manchester United and Everton.

It is believed a deal could be struck for Mina in the region of €30m.
