Barca ‘priority’ for Samp target

Sampdoria target Yerry Mina is still ‘prioritising’ a move to Barcelona, according to his agent-uncle.

Mina has long been linked with Barca, although claims Samp are ready to hijack any deal by promising the Palmeiras defender first-team football.

“I spoke to Palmeiras’ board last week,” Jair Mina told RAC1.

“I’m always in touch with Barcelona too. For now, we’ve decided to wait and reflect on the situation.

“Yerry is on holiday and awaiting news.  Now, all we have to do is wait for an agreement between Barcelona and Palmeiras.

“They’re the clubs that have to decide what the next steps will be. The Blaugrana are a big club and we respect their schedule.

“There are also other clubs interested in the player, but Barcelona have always been our priority. We’ll see what happens in the next few days.”
