Barcelona Complete £10.5 Million Signing Of Yerry Mina From Palmeiras

The Catalonian club announced the acquisition on Thursday.

Barcelona has reportedly paid €120 million ($144.47 million) to sign Coutinho from Liverpool on a contract that includes a €400 million ($481.3 million) buyout clause.

Barca had planned to sign Mina at the end of the season but have made a decision to get the deal done as they look to strengthen for the assault on silverware.

Mina was a key part for Palmeiras when it won the Brazilian league in 2016 and was runner-up previous year.

The Colombia worldwide will strengthen Barcelona's defensive options as Javier Mascherano is expected to leave Camp Nou in the January transfer window, with Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune reportedly keen on the experienced Argentine. In fact, in his first season with the Brazilian team he was chosen as the best centre back of the Campeonato Paulista in 2017.

For less than €20m, Barcelona are signing the most exciting defender in South America.

Catalonia " s Barcelona FC informed today that the Colombian central defender Yerry Mina had been signed with the team for 11.8 million euros, local media reported.

However, Mina has joined early, signing a five-and-a-half year deal with a release clause of €100 million (£88.5 million), with hopes he can settle quickly in La Liga. Mina's transfer included a transaction fee of $14.2 million.

It's also worth noting that Barcelona are expected to sell Javier Mascharano this transfer window. Since the Colombian will land in Barcelona today and Barça have an away league game on the weekend, today's game against Celta is expected to be Mascherano's final ever game for FC Barcelona.
