Reports: Man Utd♦ Shift CB Focus to Yerry Mina

Manchester United have turned their attention to Yerry Mina after deeming Toby Alderweireld and Harry Maguire too expensive, as per reports.

The Red Devils have been looking to upgrade the centre-back position this summer, and identified the Tottenham and Leicester City defenders as their top two options.

But United were put off the chase for Maguire after Leicester demanded a sum in excess of £75 million ($99m) for the 25-year-old.

Spurs are also asking for at least £75m for Alderweireld, a figure United are similarly unwilling to pay.

With time and their available funds both presenting issues, Jose Mourinho's side have been forced to look toward the 23-year-old Barcelona defender instead of their preferred duo.

Mina has been offered to United and with the clock ticking ahead of the August 9 transfer deadline, the Colombia international may represent the most realistic option for the Red Devils.

Barcelona will demand €40m (£36m/$46m) for Mina, a figure that is more in line with United's budget.
