Colombian Star Refused to Sign For Man Utd Because of Mourinho

September 16, 2018

A report has claimed that Yerry Mina chose Everton over Man United partly because Jose Mourinho did not make the centre-back feel wanted.

The Colombia international defender was rumoured to be a primary summer transfer target for Man Utd, however, ended up departing from Barcelona to join the Toffees instead.

According to The Sun, Colombian defender had three reasons to pick Goodison Park over Old Trafford, the first being a lack of a contract with Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho.

The second is believed to have been the belief that the Red Devils were actively pursuing other central defensive targets ahead of Colombian star, making him feel unwanted by Jose Mourinho.

Furthermore, a call by Everton head-coach Marco Silva to Mina in hope of convincing the 23-year-old defender to join the Merseyside Reds is believed to have sealed the deal for the player.

Colombia international has yet to make his Toffees debut following the foot injury but he is expected to make a return to action after the international break.
