Watch: What Yerry Mina Did During Camp Nou Presentation Is Pure Class

FC Barcelona's newest signing has revealed he got goosebumps when he met Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

The 23-year-old Mina was signed from Brazilian club Palmeiras for 11.8 million euros ($14.3 million), "fulfilling a dream" and joining a defense that has been depleted by the injury of France global Samuel Umtiti.

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.

However, while the 23-year-old was obviously elated after sealing his big move from Palmeiras, the pride and joy inside the stadium paled in comparison with the celebrations taking place in his hometown.

In an interview, Yerry Mina went on to say, "For me, he [Messi] is the best in the world". The first impression I got of him was one of humility.

The Colombian worldwide will undoubtedly strengthen Barcelona's defensive side, especially with Javier Mascherano expected to leave the club.

Former Palmeiras defender Yerry Mina is thrilled with his move to Barcelona. "I always do it, and I hope to be a success here". "I've always followed great full-backs and great central defenders, like those here, such as [Gerard] Pique, [Javier] Mascherano, [Samuel] Umtiti and [Thomas] Vermaelen". With the work that we will all do, I will fight to be at the World Cup.
