Barcelona Delayed Signing Mina Until Next Summer

Barcelona Delayed Signing Mina Until Next Summer

A story appearing in the media this morning, inferred that although Barcelona were interested in bringing the Palmeiras defender, Yerry Mina, to the Camp Nou, the deal has been delayed.

According to our source, the English news vehicle, The Express, picking up on something in the Spanish media source Diario Gol, the deal has been delayed until next summer, with the 22-year-old officially joining Barcelona on 1 July 2018.

Mina, a centre-back, is one for the future but our sources are suggesting the delay in the player coming to London is at the bequest of Lionel Messi, with the inference being that Messi didn`t want to see his friend and fellow Argentine, Javier Mascherano, pushed further down the Cam Nou pecking order.

Now whether there`s any real substance to that suggestion we can debate but with Nelson Semedo having been brought to the club this season and with Ernesto Valverde preferring to utilise Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti as his centre-backs, bringing in Mina would have seen Mascherano`s playing time limited.
