Barcelona have completed yet another signing as they continue to bolster their squad for the tough life ahead of them.
It is understood that Yerry Mina has sealed his move to Barcelona, who have triggered their £8million option to buy.
However, their long-term target will not arrive in Spainuntil January and will remain at his current club Palmeiras.
The Colombian-native should fit neatly into the side, with the ability to play out from the back and aerial strength at both ends of the field, emulating the ideal ball playing defender, perfect to replace a dwindling 33-year-old Javier Mascherano.
He has impressed the Barcelona scouting system for a while, scoring two goals for Colombia as representatives from his new club watched on in awe.
The 2016 best defender in Brazil winner will be a significant a boost to the club, who will hope that Mina will be the man to strengthen a Barcelonadefencebecoming increasingly weak.
