In a remarkable turn of events, Cagliari is closing in on the final details of a deal to bring Colombian defender Yerry Mina to the club on a permanent basis. The news, confirmed by the club’s official sources, signals the culmination of negotiations with Mina set to join on a definitive transfer, securing a contract until June with an option to renew.
Sky Sport Italia report that Mina has emerged as a key target for Cagliari, revisiting their interest in the Colombian defender just a few months after the conclusion of the previous transfer window. Despite a previous attempt by Cagliari to secure the centre-back’s services during the last summer transfer window, the player ultimately chose Fiorentina, which has been particularly active in the recent days of the market.
This renewed effort by Cagliari, however, is poised for a different outcome. The negotiations are reportedly at the final details stage, and the deal is anticipated to be a permanent one. The proposed contract will extend until June, providing stability for the remainder of the season, with an added option for renewal.
Mina, previously associated with Barcelona and Everton, has struggled to find consistent playing time at Fiorentina. With just seven appearances across all competitions and a mere 185 minutes on the field, the Colombian defender has been seeking a fresh opportunity to showcase his defensive prowess.
