Barca strike €11.5m Mina deal

Barcelona have agreed the €11.5 million purchase of Yerry Mina from Palmeiras, according to Sport .

The Colombia international has been the subject of a transfer tug of war between the Catalans and Palmeiras in recent weeks, with the latter demanding a fee that exceeds the first option already agreed.

But there has been a breakthrough, and Mina is now expected to arrive in Barcelona this week to finalise a transfer.

Rakitic eyes Barca exit

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic is wanted by Juventus, Liverpool and Arsenal, according to Diario Gol.

Rakitic is wary that his gametime may be diminshed by the signing of Philippe Coutinho from the Reds, but he is unwilling to move before the World Cup next summer.

If he and Croatia perform well, the report states, then offers are likely to multiply.

Barca rejected Coutinho loan

Barcelona rejected the idea of loaning Philippe Coutinho back to Liverpool for the remainder of the season, according to the Daily Mail .

Turan wants to stay at Barca

Arda Turan wants to stay at Barcelona and collect his full salary from the club, according to Cadena SER .

Barca ahead of Man Utd in Griezmann chase

Manchester United face a battle to convince Antoine Griezmann to join them, with Barcelona considered favourites to land the Atletico Madrid star, according to ESPN .

The Red Devils retain an interest in the France international but he would prefer to stay in Spain, thus edging Barca to the front of the queue for his signature.

Griezmann is unlikely to leave the Liga club in January and although he remains open to a switch to Old Trafford, there are still reservations about swapping Madrid for Manchester.

Inter continue Deulofeu talks

Inter Milan are continuing talks with Barcelona in the hope of agreeing a deal to sign Gerard Deulofeu on loan, Corriere dello Sport .

Deulofeu is keen to leave Barcelona during the January transfer window and would be open to a move to Inter, having previously enjoyed a loan spell at AC Milan.

However, Inter want a loan deal with an option to buy, while Barcelona would prefer an obligation to sign the winger permanently. The potential for giving Barca first option on signing Inter defender Milan Skriniar is one compromise being mooted.

Arda Turan set for Turkey switch

Arda Turan is closing in on a switch to Turkish side Basaksehir, according to Sabah .

The Turkey international has been somewhat frozen out at Barcelona, with the arrival of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool further complicating his route to the first team. 

And it appears Barca are keen to offload the midfielder, with Basaksehir president Goksel Gumusdag apparently in Spain to negotiate the transfer.
