Fekir future not assured as Mina remains in Lyon frame

Everton and Manchester United have until Thursday to complete a deal for Mina; Lyon have until the end of August.

The Toffees have been actively looking to recruit a new central defender throughout the transfer window but have had no such luck as of yet.

They already met with me, met Matt Judge and are simply finalizing the final offer for Yerry Mina to be a Manchester United player'. It is said that both Everton and Manchester United are interested in him.

Despite Everton's firm stance that a deal taking Ademola Lookman away from Goodison Park this season will not happen, Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig continue to eye the player who impressed on loan in the Bundesliga last term. But their bid of €30 million plus €4 million in variables was rejected. According to 90min, Everton are ahead of Manchester United to secure the Barcelona center-back for a fee of €32m.

English clubs have until 5pm Thursday to get players in, and Chelsea are now preparing to try and sign Fekir. Sarri acknowledges he has plenty of technical ability, speed and quality in finding a killer pass.

Tottenham also want Anthony Martial included as part of the deal but while Mourinho is happy for the France global to leave, Ed Woodward, United's executive vice-chairman, wants to keep the player at Old Trafford.

Lyon hope that they will be able to play on the good relationship that they have with Barcelona, having sold Samuel Umtiti there last summer, to then be able to buy the player from the Catalan club for €25m.

The defender was thought to be hot property after a strong showing at the World Cup that included 3 goals in 4 games.

After his €11.8m move to Barcelona from Palmeiras in January, Mina had to sit on Barcelona's bench due to the presence of Pique and Umiti in the starting XI. After all, the player is young and still has a lot of potential.
