Barcelona: Yerry Mina steps out barefoot during unveiling

Yerry Mina has been unveiled as a Barcelona player

Barcelona had an agreement with Palmeiras to bring Mina in the middle of this year for about nine million euros, but agreed to pay extra and advance the deal because of Umtiti's hamstring injury.

The 23 year-old is pleased to join a club possessing top-tier talent, detailing the impact his first meeting with Messi and Luis Suarez had on him.

However, despite trying to nutmeg his dad during a photo session or even dancing for the journalists and photographers present there, none impressed the entertainment loving Spanish crowd more than what he did before stepping on the pitch for the first time.

He explained: "There's a saying in my country: 'Touch the ground you want to conquer with the sole of your feet'". 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. I always do it, and I hope to be a success here".

"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". With the work that we will all do, I will fight to be at the World Cup.

As long as he doesn't get starstruck by Messi's brilliance every week, there's every reason to believe Mina can be an inspired signing.
