Barcelona presents Colombian centre-back Yerry Mina
La Liga leaders Barcelona have signed center-back Yerry Mina from Palmeiras on a 5 year contract for a fee of 11.8 million euros (10.44 million pounds).
The Colombia international has made 33 appearances for Palmeiras over the last two seasons, helping them win the league title in 2016. He also won the Copa Sudamericana with former club Santa Fe.
The promising 23-year-old is expected to reinforce Barcelona’s defence with Spanish media reports saying veteran Javier Mascherano is close to leaving to join Chinese side Hebei China Fortune.
