PSG not put off by Kante’s bumper new Chelsea contract

Jose Mourinho recently indicated his disappointment with United's transfer business so far this summer, and they now have less than a week until the window slams shut on the eve of the Premier League season.

Barcelona star Yerry Mina could be set for a move away from Camp Nou with Manchester United tipped to capture the Colombian global.

The Times says the Blues have offered their midfield lynchpin a new contract worth £290,000 a week to fend off interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

"It is not fair and I do not like, and I do not like it if other coaches talk about situations of players who are playing for other clubs", Tuchel said.

Furthermore, should he put pen to paper on the contract, he would go above Eden Hazard and become the Blues best-paid star who now earns around £220,000 a week.

He might not be their top earner for long though. They claim that United will demand the Polish striker in exchange for Anthony Martial, who is being linked with a move away.

Smalling has been a very good servant for Manchester United.

The 27-year-old will earn £15m per season until 2023.

While that would appear to clear the way for Mina to move to Everton, it is also understood that the Toffees are now not interested in re-entering negotiations for the centre-back.

Yahoo Sport and Sky Sports are among those reporting that United have been tracking Mina since the early 2016 and were keen to sign the defender before he sealed a move to Barcelona last summer.

Rojo joined United in 2014 following the World Cup and has made a total of 107 appearances with the Red Devils.

With the two Premier League clubs having rescinded their offers, it now leaves Mina with no suitors at the current time.

Chelsea want Aston Villa's 22-year-old English midfielder Jack Grealish, who is also a target for Tottenham.
