Manchester United have made a fresh approach to FC Barcelona about the possibility of signing Yerry Mina this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri is being quoted by the Daily Star as claiming that the Red Devils have made a new approach to the Spanish club about the possibility of signing the Colombia star this summer.

The same report says that FC Barcelona could sell the centre-half less than a year after signing him from Palmeiras for £10m.

According to the same story, Mina’s impressive performances for Colombia at the World Cup in Russia caught the attention of Jose Mourinho, who is now keen to try and bring him to Old Trafford.

The same article says that Mina is considered as much more attainable than Harry Maguire or Toby Alderweireld, both of whom have been linked with Manchester United in recent days.

The story says that a deal for Mina to move to Manchester United has been discussed and an agreement on a fee of around £36m could be reached before the transfer deadline next week.

Manchester United kick off the new Premier League season when they take on Leicester City on Friday night next week.
