Barcelona Confirm Expected €11.8m Signing of Colombian Centre-Back Yerry Mina

The Colombian attracted Barcelona following his stellar performances for his club, having helped Brazilian outfit Palmeiras to the Brasileiro Serie A title in 2016.

Colombia global Mina, 23, will sign a four-year contract at Camp Nou after Palmeiras accepted an offer of 11.8 million euros for the central defender.

Mina has signed a five-and-a-half-year deal with the Catalan giants.

The 6ft 5in (1.95m) Colombian is set to fill the void left by Javier Mascherano, who is on the verge of a €10m switch to China's Hebei Fortune.

The table-toppers said in a statement: "Yerry Mina now comes to Barca with the opportunity to continue developing as a footballer following his move to Europe".

This is Barca's second signing of the January transfer window after the earlier arrival of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool.

Barca had an option to sign Mina for €9m after the 2018 World Cup, but have made a decision to fast-track the transfer due to Javier Mascherano's pending move to Chinese Super League side Hebei Fortune.
