Yerry Mina to Everton for 30m euros

The Colombian Yerry Mina is no longer a Barça player. Only seven months after arriving at the club, the international defender for Colombia packs his bags. His destination is Everton, the English club that has paid just over 30m euros, as announced by the club in a statement, for one of the great revelations of the World Cup held in Russia this past summer. In addition, Barça reserves an option to buy back the Colombian player.

The player’s decision was weighed by the lack of minutes that he has been playing during his time at the Camp Nou, added to the prospect of not playing them in the future during this new season. The signing of Lenglet was a further sign that Barça would not count on him to have a leading role.
The deal that makes him an Everton player has been closed for some 30.25m euros, plus 1.5m as a variable. His transfer has been one of the great summer soap operas. At first Manchester United seemed to be the most interested in signing him, then Lyon’s Olympique appeared strong. Finally, neither one nor the other. Everton, who already closed the signing of Lucas Digne a few weeks ago, will be his new team.

Meanwhile, the Portuguese André Gomes is on loan for a season the British club in exchange for 2.25m euros.
