Barcelona set to complete second January signing as Yerry Mina jets in

Barcelona set to complete second January signing as Yerry Mina jets in”

FC Barcelona has officially announced the signing of Colombian defender Yerry Mina for the next five seasons.

Barça already had an option to sign Mina in summer for a fixed price of €9m, but an agreement to bring that forward by several months has always been expected.

The initial arrangement would have seen Barcelona pay the full fee up front - but the Nou Camp giants are now requesting the fee be paid in instalments.

Mina had made it clear that he wants to move to Barcelona this month, but his current employers remained adamant that they will only sanction a move if the current La Liga leaders match their valuation. The Colombian has signed for 5 and a half seasons.

Mina will be the first Colombian to play for Barcelona and Faustino Asprilla tweeted a graphic of the signing. Mina had earlier tasted success in Colombia with Santa Fe after winning the 2015 national title as well as that year's Copa Sudamericana.

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.

Barcelona have already added to their squad this month, having finally completed a long-awaited move for Brazil worldwide Philippe Coutinho.
