Jose Mourinho is confident of signing one more defender before next Thursday's deadline and Manchester United are largely expected to bring in a centre-back.
The Mancunians were then linked with a £35 million move for Barcelona centre-back Yerry Mina, with reports earlier this week claiming that the club had agreed personal terms with the Colombian worldwide. Manchester United were thought to have turned their attention elsewhere, but perhaps it was just a smokescreen to instigate new transfer talks with Tottenham once more.
United face Leicester City in the season's opener next Friday.
Nevertheless, it seems Everton will capitalise on the opportunity to recruit Mina, with Sport claiming that the defender will put pen to paper on a five-year deal at Goodison Park. Constant rumours of the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Yerry Mina have been floating around the corner. He went on to feature only 21 times throughout the previous campaign, contributing with a solitary assist in the process.
