Manchester United seem they are so close from completing a new summer signing where Manchester United are reportedly close to sign a South American defender.
Manchester United fans are eager to see a new world-class defender after last season’s defensive issues and mistakes from Chris Smalling and Phil Jones such as in the final FA Cup match against Chelsea FC which Manchester United lost due to a defensive mistake from Phil Jones.
According to the British sports news network, Sky Sports, Manchester United are looking to sign Barcelona and Colombia’s defender, Yerry Mina, from the La Liga giant, Barcelona FC.
Manchester United are reported cooling their interested from Leicester City and England’s defender, Hary Maguire, and Tottenham Hotspur and England’s defender, Toby Alderweireld, in order to sign Barcelona’s defender.
Manchester United are keen to sign a new central defender to partner up with Eric Bailey and strengthen the defense where Yerry Mina is expected to be an easier target than the English defenders.
Yerry Mina joined the Spanish La Liga club, FC Barcelona, during the winter transfer windows a few months ago, back in January, and couldn’t break into the starting 11 where he played just a few matches since then for Barcelona, but impressed in the world cup and scored three goals for his national team, Colombia.
