Duncan Castles claims Man United want Colombia star ahead of Harry Maguire
Man United would rather sign Yerry Mina than Harry Maguire, reporter Duncan Castles has claimed
Jose Mourinho would prefer to sign Yerry Mina ahead of Harry Maguire to bolster the Manchester United defence, according to reporter Duncan Castles.
The Red Devils are in the market to sign a new centre-half in the summer transfer window to improve Mourinho’s defence ahead of the new campaign.
Manchester United have been regularly linked with a move to sign Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld from title rival Tottenham Hotspur.
The Red Devils are thought to be struggling to match Tottenham’s asking price as Spurs look to secure a transfer fee in the region of £75m.
Leicester City’s World Cup star Maguire emerged as a target for Manchester United in recent weeks after his excellent performances for England in Russia this summer.
Another World Cup star, Colombia defender Mina has been touted as another target for Manchester United boss manager Jose Mourinho.
Sunday Times reporter Castles believes the Manchester United head coach would rather sign Mina than Maguire.
“If you give Mourinho an option between those two, it would be Yerry Mina because he has reservations about Maguire.” Castles told the Transfer Window podcast.
Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season to end up above Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool FC and Chelsea FC.
