Mina is eager to stay at Barcelona whilst the club themselves want him out

Despite struggling to make an impact for Barcelona during his brief time with the club so far, Mina has still managed to make a formidable impression for Colombia during the World Cup in Russia.

The 23-year-old scored one of three goals in his side’s comfortable win over Poland, with the Blaugrana star also bagging the winner against Senegal to guide his national side into the next round of the tournament, where they’re set to take on England.

Since his move to the Nou Camp from Palmieras in January 2018, the Colombian has only made six appearances for Barca, with one of these being the hectic 5-4 loss they suffered to Levante late on in the season.

If Barcelona are serious about getting Mina out of the club, Napoli may be the perfect place for the player to develop into the centre back he’s able to.
