Mina has signed a five-and-a-half-year deal with Barcelona and has become the club's second January acquisition, following the arrival of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool for a jaw-dropping £145 million.

The 23-year-old Mina said he was delighted to join the La Liga leaders and he was aiming to achieve big things. "I've always dreamed of it", said Mina.

"I'm going to work to bring somethings to the best players in the world".

However, despite trying to nutmeg his dad during a photo session or even dancing for the journalists and photographers present there, none impressed the entertainment loving Spanish crowd more than what he did before stepping on the pitch for the first time. The 33-year-old Argentine has started only six games this season and already announced his intention to leave the club a few months ago.


The father of Yerry Mina is delighted over his move to Barcelona. And here I want to make history with everyone. "I always do it and I hope to succeed". To contribute to the team and learn from my team-mates.

"It made my hairs stand on end".

'I just thank God for having a chance to be here'. I will be calm and I'll try to control the adrenaline and I'll adapt to the group with my dancing.

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.
