The Catalonian club announced the acquisition on Thursday.

After splashing out 142 million pounds to bring Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool, Barcelona have now turned their attention to their defence.

Barca had planned to sign Mina at the end of the season but have chose to get the deal done as they look to strengthen for the assault on silverware.

FC Barcelona has officially announced the signing of Colombian defender Yerry Mina for the next five seasons.

The Colombian global will undoubtedly strengthen Barcelona's defensive side, especially with Javier Mascherano expected to leave the club.

Yerry Mina

"The cost of the transfer is 11.8 million euros and the termination clause is 100 million".

The center-back has proved himself a strong asset to his former team, supporting them to triumph as league title-winner in 2016 and scoring a total of nine goals during the team's 49 matches.

It's also worth noting that Barcelona are expected to sell Javier Mascharano this transfer window.

Veteran Mascherano is disgruntled at his lack of minutes, as he hopes to earn a place at the World Cup for Argentina, and so is eyeing a move to China, with Hebei Fortune favourites.

But should the need arise to replace the goalkeeper after all three substitutions are made, Ernesto Valverde could ask Yerry Mina to don the gloves.
