Real Betis interested in taking on Yerry Mina

Real Betis interested in taking on Yerry Mina

June 25, 2018 Off By Nikki Parsons

Reports say that Barcelona’s centre-back Yerry Mina may soon be heading south to Real Betis.

Considering that Clement Lenglet might be moving from Sevilla next month, as well as rumours of Arthur’s deal from Gremio being brought forward, the 23-year-old currently has an uncertain future at Barcelona.

The defender has only been around five months since joining from Palmeiras, but has only played 377 minutes in five league games and one cup game.

According to El Desmarque, Yerry Mina does not want to leave Barcelona. After Colombia beat Poland yesterday, Mina said,

“For me, Barcelona is the best team in the world. I don’t want to leave Barcelona and I never wanted to do it. I like the club, the city, the people, the players that are there…everything.”

But, with such little playing time and reports of other defenders in Barcelona’s transfer pipeline, it seems unlikely that he will stay.

Although previously there were reports of interest from Liverpool, it seems more likely now that the Colombian will now head to Real Betis.

The club’s sporting vice-president Lorenzo Serra Ferrer has a good relationship with Barcelona’s general manager Pep Segura, which is why Real Betis are the favourites to strike a deal.
