Manchester United 'to move for Barcelona's Yerry Mina' if they're priced out of Harry Maguire deal

Manchester United may turn to Barcelona defender Yerry Mina if their bid for Harry Maguire falters.

The Colombian had an impressive World Cup, but has failed to make his mark at the Nou Camp.

French outlet RMC Sport believe Mina could join United in the coming days - especially if Leicester dig their heels in and want a large fee for the England star.

United have said to have been in contact with Mina - even though Lyon have offered €30m for the 23-year-old.

Everton have also been linked with the defender but Colombia international legend Carlos Valderrama has urged Mina not to move to the Premier League and consider Galatasaray instead.

Speaking to Radio Caracol Valderrama said: “The Premier League is attractive but for me the Champions League is the most prestigious.

“I don’t think Yerry should join a mid-table team like Everton.

“Fatih Terim has a great record developing players, if it were me I would pick Galatasaray.”

Ivan Perisic targeted by Manchester United so they can offload out-of-favour Anthony Martial before transfer deadline

Manchester United want to sign Croatia World Cup Star Ivan Perisic before they let Anthony Martial leave.

Martial, who has returned from United’s pre-season tour of the US for the birth of his second child, has been given the green light to leave Okd Trafford - but only on their terms.

United want at least £70million for Martial and are determined he moves abroad, despite interest from Premier League rivals Chelsea and Tottenham.

Paris St Germain and Bayern Munich are also in the hunt for Martial and it is understood the 22-year-old forward would favour a move to the French capital, where his partner, Melanie Da Cruz, has given birth.

Manchester United forward Martial flew home to Paris earlier this week from the Red Devils' pre-season tour of the USA to be beside partner Melanie Da Cruz as she gave birth to the couple's first child.

Martial already has another daughter, Peyton, from a previous relationship.

The Frenchman announced the birth Instagram with a picture of the new born dressed with 'I heart Dad' socks on

Martial accompanied the photo with the message: "Thank you Lord for giving me a second beautiful child in good health. Thank you my love Melanie."
