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

BARCELONA have completed their second signing of January after snapping up Yerry Mina for £10million.

The Colombia global has made 33 appearances for Palmeiras over the last two seasons, helping them win the league title in 2016.

He then tweeted: "Done deal: Barcelona have signed Colombian defender Yerry Mina from Palmeiras for € 12.3M". Mina had earlier tasted success in Colombia with Santa Fe after winning the 2015 national title as well as that year's Copa Sudamericana.

Umtiti has also been linked with a transfer away from Barcelona, with Manchester City and Manchester United among the clubs linked with triggering the France centre-back's €60m release clause.

"Without a doubt the Colombian has the potential to make it".

Mina's arrival is expected to cover the impending departure of Javier Mascherano, who is reportedly set to join Hebei China Fortune. Barcelona is paying 11.8 million euros ($14 million) for Mina, who will become the first Colombian to play an official game for the Spanish club. "I let him go", Wenger said after Wednesday's 0-0 draw with Chelsea.

The Catalans struck a €11.8m deal with the Brazilian side for the 23-year-old centre-back, whose contract includes a €100m buy-out clause.
