Barcelona defender Yerry Mina spoke briefly about his future after Colombia were knocked out of the World Cup on penalties on Tuesday.

Mina impressed again for his national side as he scored his third goal of the tournament and also produced a strong defensive display.

Despite his goalscoring performances at the tournament he continues to be linked with a move away from Barcelona, and he offered a brief update after the match.

“In my head, I’m going back to Barca,” he said.

“Now is not the time to talk about my future, but the World Cup has helped me reconnect and reaffirm myself as a footballer.”

There will certainly be interest in Mina after the World Cup and much may depend on what happens at Barca this summer. Clement Lenglet is expected to arrive shortly, and the club also have an issue with a shortage of non-EU spots.
