Barcelona confirms Yerry Mina from Brazil’s Fluminense for 11.8 million euros

Barcelona, Spain – Barcelona confirms the signing of Yerry Mina from Brazil’s Fluminense for 11.8 million euros on Tuesday. The signing is for the remainder of the season and five more until June 30, 2023.

The Colombia center-back made 33 appearances for Palmeiras after joining the Brazilian side in 2016. He won the Brazilian league title in 2016 and Copa Sudamericana with his former club Santa Fe.

A statement on Barcelona’s website said: “Yerry Mina now comes to Barça with the opportunity to continue developing as a footballer following his move to Europe. Without a doubt the Colombian has the potential to make it.”

The promising 23-year-old will reinforce the Catalan’s defense with Javier Mascherano leaving for China. Mina’s contract has a termination clause worth 100 million euros.
