Manchester United's move for Barcelona's Yerry Mina cancelled

Now United will need to look to sign yet another centre-back after failing to secure Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld or Leicester's Harry Maguire.

To sign Mina, they will face competition from Everton, as well as a host of other clubs.

A move to Manchester United seemed to be on the cards, but that has collapsed with the Premier League's runners-up seemingly more interested in Toby Alderweireld.

Columbian defender, Yerry Mina, finds himself in a disadvantaged position as suitors dried up and his potential move to Manchester United fell apart.

While Mina has always been an admired defenders with football fans in the know, he hit mainstream attention this summer in the World Cup.

Everton makes bid for Marcos Rojo: After purchasing Richarlison and Lucas Digne, the Toffees keep making moves and make a reported bid for Manchester United's Marcos Rojo.

However, they add that they expect a deal to be agreed before Thursday's deadline.

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.

Yerry Mina has found it hard to continue his progress since joining Barcelona from Palmeiras earlier this year in January. If confirmed, Mina will likely enter the first team immediately in place of Ashley Williams, who has joined Stoke City on a season-long loan deal.

However, the Mirror claim there has been a breakthrough in negotiations with Tottenham and Man Utd are now expected to wrap-up a £60m deal to sign Alderweireld over the next 48 hours.
