Meeting Messi gave me goosebumps, says Barca new signing

Mina has signed a five-and-a-half-year deal with Barcelona and has become the club's second January acquisition, following the arrival of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool for a jaw-dropping £145 million.

Explaining the reason behind this, the center-back explained, "There is a saying in my country that says, 'Touch the land you want to conquer with the sole of your feet.' And here I want to make history with everyone".

And the Catalan side are soon to add another star turn to their ranks, Yerry Mina. "I always do it, and I hope to be a success here".

"For me, he [Messi] is the best in the world".

Barcelona recently confirmed the signing of Yerry Mina from Palmeiras, and the player was revealed to the press media today. With the work that we will all do, I will fight to be at the World Cup.

As the 23-year-old emerged from the tunnel, he waved and applauded the faithfuls then right before stepping onto the turf he did something very classy.

"I have come to learn a lot and win big trophies", Mina said.

"It made my hairs stand on end". I have an huge joy to be in Barcelona, thanks to Colombia for all the support. Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen are all firmly ahead of the Colombian in the pecking order. I will be calm and I'll try to control the adrenaline and I'll adapt to the group with my dancing.
