Manchester United have “pulled the plug” on their deal to sign Yerry Mina from FC Barcelona this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Red Devils have changed their minds about bringing the 23-year-old Colombia defender to Old Trafford this summer.

The Red Devils were believed to be close to agreeing a deal to bring Mina to the club but the same story now says that they’ve cancelled their interest due to a row over agent’s fees.

The story says that Manchester United are angry with Mina’s representative as he attempted to change the terms of the transfer just as the deal was approaching a conclusion.

Manchester United are thought to be keen to bolster their central defensive options this summer and have also been heavily linked with the likes of Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld.

The Red Devils will be aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title next season after they finished second in the table and without a trophy last term.

So far, Manchester United have signed Diogo Dalot, Fred and Lee Grant as they look to try and wrestle the Premier League title from Manchester City.
