Defender Mina made the £10.5million switch Brazilian side Palmeiras on Thursday signing a five-and-a-half-year deal with the La Liga leaders.

Barcelona's new signing, Yerry Mina has revealed how he felt after meeting Lionel Messi for the first time. The 23-year-old Mina is being brought in as a long-term option and will not walk straight into the first team.

'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.

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. "I've always dreamed of it", said Mina.
