Barcelona completes fifth summer signing

Barcelona have completed their fifth signing of the summer after landing Colombian centre-back Yerry Mina from Brazilian side Palmeiras.

The Brazilian international becomes the fifth summer signing for Barca following the arrival of  Nelson Semedo, Gerard Deulofeu, Marlon Santos and Paulinho. The 22 year old, who is currently out injured until the end of September, will complete the 2017 Brazilian league campaign before arriving in Catalonia in January.

Mina’s agent confirmed recently that the deal was 'practically' done and he expects his client to become a Barcelona player at the start of 2018. According to reports, Barcelona had an option to buy the Colombia international for €9m (£8m) and decided to execute it owing to their shortage of options at centre-back at the moment.
