Yerry Mina not thinking about leaving Barcelona

  Yerry Mina not thinking about leaving Barcelona Colombia’s World Cup hero Yerry Mina has denied claims he could leave Barcelona this summer. Speaking to reporters after Colombia’s victory over Senegal, as cited on Football 365, Mina said he is not thinking about anything other than succeeding at the Nou Camp. “My dream is to make history with Barcelona; the best club in the world for me. That’s why I try to do things right. I hope to have the confidence of the coach and if not I will continue working.” There had been some suggestions prior to the World Cup that the player would be shown the door at Barcelona after he failed to impress following his move to the club. Mina struggled to adapt to the Spanish league during the second half of the season, which led to suggestions the club saw his future elsewhere. Liverpool had been linked with a loan move for the player, with some reports going as far as suggesting a deal had been agreed between both clubs. Mina has impressed during the World Cup group stage, scoring twice for Colombia, which has prompted calls for Barcelona to give him a chance next season.

Russia's World Cup prodigy Aleksandr Golovin might be a cheaper choice, but teams such as Juventus, Arsenal and Chelsea have already expressed their interest in him.

Yerry Mina is the latest player to be linked with a move to Chelsea as part of the deal to take Willian to Barcelona.

Mundo Deportivo report that the Catalan side could offer a player in return as they are currently unwilling to pay the £70 million that Chelsea asking for.

A host of players, including Andre Gomes, Rafinha and Paulinho have been touted as possible targets for the Blues as Barcelona attempt to sweeten the deal.

Paulinho, who only joined Barcelona last summer, is also represented by Kia Joorabchian, the influential agent who is manufacturing a potential move to La Liga for Willian.

Joorabchian is said to be flying into London to hold talks over a potential transfer.

The Liverpool Echo reports that the Toffees are keen to snap up the defender who impressed at the World Cup in Russia. Mina has been tipped to leave the Catalan side this summer after failing to impress during his first few months at the club. Barcelona also need to free up a non-Eu space in their squad with Gremio youngster Arthur joining. The report states that a loan move may be the more favourable option for both clubs. Chelsea and Liverpool have previously been linked with a move for Mina, who proved to be a goal threat at the World Cup, netting three times from defence. Barcelona are keen to sign Willian this summer and there had been some suggestions that Mina could be used as part of a deal to lure the Brazilian away from Stamford Bridge.

He scored a late goal to take Colombia’s meeting with England into extra-time, but it was not enough to help see them through.

Barcelona are also exploring options that would see Willian pay some of the transfer fee, something that Paulinho did last summer.

With the Brazilian keen not to miss out on the chance to join the La Liga champions, this could turn out to be a feasible option.

Barcelona confident about securing deal to sign Willian .
Barcelona are confident of completing a €60m move for Chelsea winger Willian, according to reports in Spain. It was initially thought that Barca would not be able to sign the 29-year-old until later in the window as they would likely need to sell or loan out Yerry Mina to free up a non-EU place in their squad. However, Philippe Coutinho is about to be granted a Portuguese passport as his wife is from the Iberian country and as such, a non-EU will be freed up for Willian. The winger fell out with former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte but with Maurizio Sarri now in charge, he could choose to stay in London for another season. However, he is understood to be in favour of a move to Spain and he’d be happy to make the switch should the two clubs agree a fee. Sarri is thought to be targeting a few of his ex-players and he could cash in on Willian to fund moves for the likes of Gonzalo Higuain.
