Manchester United are yet again set to miss out on another defender, shortly after failing to sign Leicester City’s Harry Maguire.
The Old Trafford outfits are eager to get a centre-back before the start of next season and they have shown interest in a couple of quality defenders, including Harry Maguire, Yerry Mina and Jerome Boateng.
However, Mourinho pulled out of the race to sign Harry Maguire due to huge asking price from the Foxes hierarchy.
According to the Sun, the King Power outfits are demanding £80m offer from the Red Devils so as to release the England international but United are not ready to give such steep amount of money.
As an alternative to the 25-year-old defender, United turned their attention to Colombian international Yerry Mina, who plays for Barcelona.
Though it was initially reported that the former Premier League Champions were on the verge of completing the player’s signature, that turned out to be false information.
Latest reports emanating from the Goodison Park via Goal.com claimed that the Merseyside club have leapfrogged the Red Devils in the race for his signature as they have reached a €32m agreement with Barcelona.
The report further revealed that the Catalans have agreed to let go the defender they bought for just €12m from Palmeira last season and he could complete his move to Everton before the end of the day.
