FC Barcelona complete transfer for Palmeiras D Yerry Mina

Mina will join the club on a five-and-a-half-year deal and is Barcelona's second signing of the January transfer window. The Colombia worldwide will sign a 5-1/2 year contract with the Spanish side.

Mina joined Palmeiras from Sante Fe past year, and he proved an instant success.

The statement added: "Yerry Mina now comes to Barca with the opportunity to continue developing as a footballer following his move to Europe".

Mina was expected to join the Catalan club in the summer for €9 million (£7.9 million), but with Javier Mascherano on the verge of leaving in January, along with first-choice defender Samuel Umtiti now on the sidelines, the deal was brought forward.

Said to be the largest of its kind in Europe, the Aluminium Dunkerque smelter has a capacity of 270,000 tons of aluminum per year.

It is also reported that the termination clause of the Colombian defender's contract will be €100 million.

Luan scored five goals in just two matches in the youth Copa Sao Paulo de Futebol Junior, having previously turned plenty of heads with his scintillating displays for Brazil during 2017. He didn't get enough games with us this season. "I let him go", Wenger said after Wednesday's 0-0 draw with Chelsea.

Yerry Mina was expected to arrive in Barcelona on Thursday after being given permission by Palmeiras to complete a long-awaited deal to join the Catalan giants.
