The Catalan giant announced an €11.8million deal to bring Mina from Palmeiras on Friday (AEDT), the Colombia global putting pen to paper on a five-and-a-half-year contract.

Ernesto Valverde has claimed that Barcelona have only strengthened their status as the "best team in the world" following the arrivals of two new players.

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 got goosebumps when Messi approached me with Suarez in the dressing room", said Mina.

Before the press conference, however, the second Barça reinforcement acquired during the winter had a busy schedule of events, in which he was introduced in public, with 8,552 spectators who waved Colombian flags at Camp Nou.

He took his ME in Aerospace Engineering from IISc, Bangalore followed by a doctoral degree from IIT, Bombay in 2006. It comes at a time when ISRO is planning to outsource construction of satellites and rockets for future launches.

He explained: "There's a saying in my country: 'Touch the ground you want to conquer with the sole of your feet'".

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

"I'm calm. I came to work, to contribute, to be with the best". Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen are all firmly ahead of the Colombian in the pecking order.

"I am very happy to be fulfilling a dream for which I have always worked and fought".
