REVEALED: 2 reasons why Man Utd pulled out of deal for Everton signing Mina

Manchester United pulled out of a deal for new Everton signing Yerry Mina for two reasons, it has been revealed.

Mina left Barcelona for Everton on the Premier League's transfer deadline day - but only after United had pulled out of negotiations.

Don Balon says there were two reasons for United's decision.

First, Barca's insistence on a buy-back clause for a set price was rejected by United. There was the sense at the English club's end that Barca could easily re-sign Mina and sell him for a profit without United having any influence on the matter.

Secondly, Barca were insisting they also take Andre Gomes in a package deal. But United were only interested in the centre-half.

In the end, Everton signed both players hours before the Premier League transfer window closed.
