United representative Matt Judge had travelled to Barcelona last week in order to thrash out a deal, but realistically, Mina never appeared to be on United's radar - and was seen more as a smokescreen as United worked on an Alderweireld deal in the background.
Worryingly for United, who slumped to a 1-0 defeat on Sunday against Bayern Munich in their last pre-season loosener, the Manchester Evening News reports that Barca boss Ernesto Valverde "refused to rule out a move" for Pogba when quizzed by Spanish journalists.

Manchester United switched their attention towards England worldwide Harry Maguire instead, but were priced out of a move by Leicester City, who were demanding in excess of £65 million for the 25-year old.
Manchester United are reportedly set to complete their fourth signing of the summer, with Belgian worldwide Toby Alderweireld closing in on a move.
