Man Utd transfer news: Red Devils odds-on to complete Yerry Mina deal
Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is keen to splash the cash before the transfer window shuts on August 9.
The Special One has revealed he hopes to complete two more deals, with a centre-back and a versatile forward at the top of his wishlist.
And according to the bookies, Colombia international Mina, who impressed at the World Cup in Russia this summer, is likely to head to Old Trafford before the window slams shut.
Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Harry Maguire had appeared to be Jose Mourinho’s number one defensive transfer target, but with a move now looking unlikely at 7/4, his attentions seem to have turned to Barcelona defender Yerry Mina.
“The Colombian impressed many at the World Cup scoring three times and he’s now odds-on at 8/11 to be Manchester United’s fourth summer recruit.
“Everton are thought to be in the market for a centre back and they come next in the betting at 5/4, while Wolves are 5/1 to continue their summer spending spree, as Nuno Espirito Santo looks to build a squad capable of staying in the Premier League.”
Mina, 23, only joined Barcelona in the January transfer window, however, the Spanish giants are willing to sell the defender.
United were keen to sign Harry Maguire, however, Leicester are refusing to sell England’s World Cup hero, even if the Red Devils table a £65m bid.
Should United sign Mina, he would become Mourinho’s fourth summer signing.
The defender would follow Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant to Old Trafford.
Mourinho is desperate to splash the cash this summer to catch Manchester City this season.
United watched on last time out as Pep Guardiola’s men stormed to the Premier League title, with City breaking the 100-point barrier for the first time.
