World Cup 2018 hero finally responds Liverpool transfer links

Yerry Mina has no plans to leave Barcelona after being linked with a move to Liverpool, according to the defender’s uncle and agent.

The 23-year-old was signed from Palmeiras for €11.8 million (£10.5m) in January but made only six appearances for Barca until the end of the season. Mina has impressed during Colombia’s World Cup campaign, which ended on Tuesday evening after they were eliminated by England via a dramatic penalty shootout.

And the centre-back has subsequently been linked with Liverpool, Everton and Fenerbahce. ‘I’m not aware of any bids,’ Jair Mina told RAC1.

‘The player has a contract with Barcelona and wants to stay at Barcelona. We’re going to see what the situation is with the club, but we don’t have any information [regarding a move].

‘He moved in January to succeed at a big club and Barca are a big club. ‘He is convinced he will get the chance to do big things and our idea is that he stays where he is.’
