Barcelona Closing in on Defender Signing

Barcelona Closing in on Defender Signing

With the Barcelona career of Javier Mascherano coming to an end, all that remains to be seen is whether the Argentine leaves in the January transfer window or stays until the end of the season.

However, it would seem, according to the media, Barcelona are already close to agreeing a deal to bring in a replacement for the departing defender.

The Spanish news source, AS, is reporting that Barcelona are close to doing a deal for Yerry Mina.

Mina, who is a Columbian by birth, is currently on the books of Palmeiras but the 23-year-old is seen as the perfect fit in the void left by the imminent departure of Mascherano.

Now whether a deal can be done this January, when the transfer window opens, or whether it`ll get done in the summer, remains to be seen.

Here at Vital Barcelona we`ll keep an eye out for any further news that might be forthcoming.
