Yerry Mina has admitted he’s ‘calm’ over his future but wouldn’t rule out an exit from Barcelona, amid heavy links with Manchester United.

The Colombian defender only made four La Liga starts for Barcelona last season and admitted he thought he was ‘finished’ after a tough spell at the Camp Nou.

However, he impressed at the World Cup with his country and is widely expected to move on.

Jose Mourinho is heading the queue to land him, having instructed Manchester United bosses to press ahead with a £40m deal rather than pursuing Harry Maguire.

‘In terms of my future, I have no idea but I’m calm about it,’ he told Bocas magazine.

‘I’m 23 years old and have a lot of football left to play.’

Mina opened up on his time at Barcelona last season and revealed that his fellow South Americans played a major role in keeping a positive outlook.

‘I thought a lot of things, a lot of bad things. I thought I was finished,’ he told Bocas magazine.

‘I felt so bad and [Philippe] Coutinho and Paulinho tried to encourage me all the time and told me that everything would be fine.

‘For me, I understand that there are spectacular players [in his position] but I just wanted to have a minute to impress and it didn’t happen.

‘The few minutes I did get, they were bad… it felt at times like everything was going wrong and coming down.

‘I felt like I couldn’t do anything right, such as even giving a pass in training.’
