Yerry Mina would be a good signing for Manchester United this summer, according to Red Devils legend Wes Brown.

Manchester United are weighing up alternative options to improve the Red Devils defence ahead of the new Premier League season.

The 20-time English chamopions have been left frustrated in their prolonged pursuit of Belgium star Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham Hotspur.

Mina has been linked with a move to Manchester United’s rivals Everton following his impressive performances at the World Cup.

The Colombia international scored in their loss to England in the World Cup round of 16 to force extra time and penalties.

Former Manchester United defender Brown believes Mina would be a good addition to Mourinho’s squad.

“Mina could be a good partner for Bailly,” said Bailly, speaking exclusively to 888sport.

“Obviously, he’s not played in the Premier League before but he actually did very well in the World Cup. I think Harry Maguire would be first choice but that doesn’t take anything away from Mina who is a good player.”

Manchester United signed Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot in a £17m deal from Portuguese giants FC Porto following the teenager’s impressive performances last term.

The Red Devils have also signed Brazil international Fred in a £52m deal from Ukrainian Premier League champions Shakhtar Donetsk to improve their options in midfield.

Manchester United also snapped up veteran English goalkeeper Lee Grant in a £1.5m deal from relegated Stoke City.

The Red Devils won the Europa League and the League Cup in Mourinho’s first season in charge at Old Trafford but finished last term without a trophy.
