Short video shows the incredible talent of Barcelona’s new signing Yerry Mina (Video)
Long before Javier Mascherano communicated his desire to leave Barcelona, the club had reached a pre-agreement with Palmeiras over the transfer of Yerry Mina after the 2018 World Cup.
But the Catalans have now pushed forward the arrival of the defender who underwent a successful medical on Friday.
He now signs for the reminder of the season and another five years. The cost of the transfer is €11.8m. and the buyout clause has been set at €100m.
Unless you follow Brazilian or Colombian football, then you are probably asking; “Who is Yerry Mina?”
A lot has been written about the Colombian who has been hailed as one of the entertainers in South American football.
Barcelona hailed him for his height, physical presence, aerial ability and his ability to score and also play the passing game well.
In fact, in his 49 games for the Brazilian side, Mina has scored nine goals. He has also scored another three with the Colombian national team with whom he has now made nine appearances since his debut on 8 June 2016.
But enough of all the reading as a video compilation below answers your question.
