New Barca Signing: I Got Goosebumps When I Met Messi


The Colombia global became Barcelona's second January signing this week following Philippe Coutinho to the Nou Camp.

Barcelona recently completed the signing of 23-year-old center-back Yerry Mina from Brazilian club Palmeiras with the fee reported to be around €11.8m (£10.45m) and as confirmed by the club, the Colombia worldwide carries a whopping 100 million Euro (£88.6m) release clause on his head. The deal is said to be so under the radar that not even Lionel Messi has a clue who the player will be.

City have been forced into errors by speedsters like Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha and Manchester United's Marcus Rashford. City manager Guardiola said: "Normally when this kind of reaction happens it is because he was loved by the fans".

Barcelona fans have immediately taken a liking to new signing Yerry Mina. The first impression I got of him was one of humility.

The Colombian global will undoubtedly strengthen Barcelona's defensive side, especially with Javier Mascherano expected to leave the club.

City, responding to this, have ended their pursuit and it seems Manchester United are now the only interested team. Sanchez wants to be around players who are as good as him, maybe even some that he believes are better than him.

Former Palmeiras defender Yerry Mina is thrilled with his move to Barcelona. "I always do it and I hope to succeed", he added. "This is a great club and since arriving you can feel the atmosphere here".

Mina will have to fight very hard for a shirt in a central defense position that also has Gerard Pique, Thomas Vermaelen, Samuel Umtiti and Javier Mascherano. I will be calm and I'll try to control the adrenaline and I'll adapt to the group with my dancing.
