Manchester United have entered the race to sign FC Barcelona and Colomba defender Yerry Mina, according to a report in France.

French media outlet RMC, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that Manchester United face competition from Ligue 1 side for the World Cup star.

The same article states that Lyon have already made a £26.7m (€30m) for the Colombia international in a bid to steal a march on Manchester United.

According to the same story, the Red Devils will face competition from their domestic rivals with Premier League duo Everton and Wolves.

The Daily Mirror adds that Liverpool FC were also interested in a deal to sign Mina but Jurgen Klopp is set to prioritise a move to sign Croatia and Besiktas defender Domagoj Vida.

The Red Devils boss is thought to be keen to add a new defender to their squad in the summer transfer window but have been left frustrated in their pursuit of Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld.

Manchester United have signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant in the summer transfer window so far.

The Red Devils finished in second place in the Premier League table last season.
