Barcelona unveil Yerry Mina at Nou Camp with Colombian going barefoot

Mina who joined the league leaders on a five-and-a-half-year contract for an €11.8million deal from Palmeiras on Thursday could not hide the excitement of the eventuality of playing alongside one of the best footballer ever. Moreover, at this young age, the 23-year-old's move to a powerhouse like Barca speaks for itself.

And the Barcelona fans caught a first glimpse of their latest addition as he was presented and unveiled at the iconic Camp Nou on Saturday.

He explained: "There's a saying in my country: 'Touch the ground you want to conquer with the sole of your feet'".

"I am very happy to be fulfilling a dream for which I have always worked and fought".

"For me, he [Messi] is the best in the world". I have always had my feet on the floor and my eyes on the sky, bringing my sand grain, "Mina said at the press conference".

The nine-time Colombian worldwide appears to be a direct replacement for the outgoing and China-bound Javier Mascherano and he intends to make the most of his opportunity.

Trump says US could 'go back in' Paris Agreement
The US has appeared to be so far globally isolated on this issue, but Trump strongly defended his decision. It made it very hard for us to deal in terms of business.

"I have come to work".

"Mina arrives to reinforce the central defensive positions", Barcelona said in a statement. "I'm calm. I came to work, to contribute, to be with the best".

"I have to go step by step".

"As for the dancing, I will adapt to whatever the group says".
