share on:

Barcelona will not sign Yerry Mina before the end of the season, even though the Colombia international has received various offers from the Premier League.

The La Liga leaders have a preferential option in place with Palmeiras to sign the centre back, although they have opted against activating that option in January, when he would cost them €9m.

For the January transfer window, Barca coach Ernesto Valverde wants a central defender who is already accustomed to playing football in Europe and Mundo Deportivo reports that they will instead activate their option to sign Mina, for an increased fee of €10m, in the summer instead.

Yerry Mina, meanwhile, has received various offers from the Premier League to leave Palmeiras in January, with unnamed clubs willing to pay €20m to secure his services.
Barca are not concerned about this interest from elsewhere as they have agreed a pre-contract with the player already and have an option in place with Palmeiras.
