Mourinho has failed to seal deals for Leicester’ England star Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham this summer
JOSE MOURINHO faces a last-gasp transfer window scramble after his £35million move for Barcelona’s Yerry Mina collapsed.
Manchester United now have just four days to find a central defender after pulling the plug on the Colombian because of a row over agent’s fees.
Boss Jose has failed to seal deals for Leicester’s England star Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham this
Old Trafford bigwigs are fuming because Mina’s adviser Felipe Russo moved the goalposts.
Russo angered them by asking for more and different payments.
United’s Matt Judge met the agent to sort out the player’s side of the deal and agreed a five-year contract last week.
But Russo has refused to budge on extras in the fee, including money due to him and Mina, 23.
United’s patience ran out when Russo did not meet a deadline to sign off on the deal yesterday, despite warnings on Friday.
The Red Devils play their final pre-season friendly against Bayern Munich in Germany tonight.
And with Maguire viewed as too expensive and Spurs playing hardball over Alderweireld, Mourinho now faces a race to beat Thursday’s deadline.
