Everton, Man United & Yerry Mina
There are just three sleeps remaining in the Premier League summer transfer window.
One of the rumours which has dominated this summer has been the chase to sign Barcelona and Colombia’s Yerry Mina.
The powerful centre-half made a name for himself at the World Cup, where Mina scored three goals from set-plays.
Manchester United, who have been on the lookout for a new centre-half, have been linked to Mina, as have Everton.
And the big news on Monday morning is that Everton have beaten Man United to a deal with the Catalans.
Everton ‘agree’ Barcelona deal
As reported in the Daily Mail on Monday morning:
Everton have agreed a £28.4 million fee for Barcelona defender Yerry Mina after his talks with Manchester United stalled.
Mina only joined Barcelona in January, but was restricted to just six appearances to the club, although he did win the La Liga title and the Copa del Rey.
To be clear, at the time of writing neither Barcelona nor Everton have confirmed Yerry Mina’s transfer.
Could the deal still go sour? That’s a definite possibility.
However, if Everton do land Yerry Mina, he’ll become their fourth signing of the summer.
He’ll join Lucas Digne at Goodison Park, after the French international left the Camp Nou.
Elsewhere, Everton have signed Richarlison from Watford, while Joao Virginia has joined the Toffees from Arsenal.
Man United & Jerome Botaeng
Have Man United decided to drop the Yerry Mina deal to focus on Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng instead?
On Sunday night rumours surfaced that Boateng could move to Man United for 50 million euros.
