The 23-year-old Mina was signed from Brazilian club Palmeiras for 11.8 million euros ($14.3 million), "fulfilling a dream" and joining a defense that has been depleted by the injury of France global Samuel Umtiti.
The Colombian is just 23-years-old, tall and atheltic and certainly comfortable on the ball.
The young defender proceeded to take his boots and even socks off before stepping on to the Camp Nou pitch and remained for a moment in what seemed like a prayer - something he does every time he steps on to the pitch of a new club, which won the hearts of even neutral supporters.
Barcelona fans have immediately taken a liking to new signing Yerry Mina. "I've always dreamed of it", said Mina. "The first impression I got of him was one of humility", Mina was quoted as saying by FourFourtTwo. "It says that with the planting of your [bare] feet you will touch the terrain you want to conquer".
'It's a very solid team, a very compact team, you will have a lot of possession, and everyone knows the best team in the world.
Mina will provide defensive cover for the likes of Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti, while replacing Javier Mascherano who's set to leave the club with a move to the Chinese Super League heavily muted. I'm going to work to bring something to the best players in the world. With the work that we will all do, I will fight to be at the World Cup. I will be calm and I'll try to control the adrenaline and I'll adapt to the group with my dancing. I will go objective by objective.
