Jose Mourinho wants Yerry Mina at Man Utd - there are three reasons why

New Barcelona Signing Yerry Mina Unveiled

The English transfer window is drawing to a close.

Premier League teams only have until August 9 to complete their deals, with managers agreeing to an earlier conclusion despite the rest of Europe having till the end of the month.

Manchester United are one of the club in need of making some serious moves in the next two weeks as Jose Mourinho is clearly unhappy with the current state of his squad.

Diogo Dalot and Fred are the only two arrivals so far.

It's been a frustrating window for the Red Devils, with deals for key targets failing to materialise.

Toby Alderweireld, Alex Sandro, Gareth Bale and now Harry Maguire are all no closer to being at Old Trafford next season.

The centre-back department appears to be the one Mourinho is most keen on amending, with little faith being placed in the likes of Marcos Rojo and Eric Bailly.

And it appears Mourinho may have found his man in Barcelona's Yerry Mina, who could be available for around €30m after the Blaugrana made it clear they'd be willing to sell.

Catalan-based publication Mundo Deportivo are reporting that Mourinho's interest in the Colombian is 'really high' for three key reasons.

Firstly, the Portuguese admires the physical dominance of the former Palmeiras man, something which has been lacking at Old Trafford.

Secondly, Mourinho is concerned by the poor performances of Victor Lindelof, with the Swede really struggling in his first season in England.

And finally, the United boss is worried by Bailly's inconsistent displays, which would explain why the Ivorian failed to feature much towards the end of last season.

Given his clear lack of faith in those available to him, it seems almost a dead certainty that one of his four centre-back options will be sold this summer.

Chris Smalling and Phil Jones will likely be kept to maintain the homegrown quota, meaning that one of Rojo or Bailly could be getting the boot.
