According SunSport, Jose Mourinho wants a defender and has urged Ed Woodward to step up the club's £60 million pursuit of Leicester's Harry Maguire.

RMC also revealed that United are already monitoring the situation of the Barcelona star Mina, who could be available for half the price.

Everton, Wolves and Lyon are also said to be interested in signing the 23-year-old but will have to present a good bid before they can lure the player away from his club.

The Sun reveals that Mina's agent Jair Mina will be meeting with Barca chiefs to settle the future of his client.

Barcelona signed him £10 million from Brazilian side Palmeiras in January, but they know they could treble their money six months on.

The Colombia is behind first-choice centre-back pairing Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti but with the arrival of Clement Lenglet from Sevilla, his future may be unsure.

Everton are planning to sign both Mina and Lucas Digne from Barca as they hope to fortify their team.

Newly promoted side, Wolverhampton Wanderers have also made an enquiry about the player.

Mina looks ready-made for the Premier League with pace, strength and an ability to read the game.

But it's his aerial dominance that really stands out and the six-foot-four defender headed in three goals - including one against England - for his nation at Russia 2018.

NAIJ.com previously reported that Premier League side, Liverpool are plotting a deal for Colombia defender Yerry Mina, reports suggest.

According to UK Mirror, citing sources at Fotomac, eggheads of the Anfield outfit are satisfied with Mina's overall performance at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia and are set to struggle it out with Turkish side, Fenerbahce this summer.

Mina netted three goals in as many appearances for Colombia at the Mundial, including the all-important dying minute equalizer in round of 16 painful defeat to England’s Three Lions.
