    Is he any good or is he another Douglas and it's another shady deal by Bartomeu?

    They say he is the best young defender to come out of South America for a while

    He is almost 23, so he isn't really a raw young talent from South America anymore and I didn't really hear much about him other than him being linked to Barca.
    Also the price reminds me of Douglas, I don't think you can get "the best young defender to come out of South America for a while" for just 9m.

    Yerry is nowhere near as random as the Douglas deal was.

    The only reason why he costs 9 million euros is because we made a deal to get a first option on him back when he just signed with Palmerias in 2016. heck we even tried to sign him for the B team before around that time as well but it was decided it would be best for him if he played with Palmerias.

    If we didn't strike that deal with Palmerias, he would have costed a lot more than just 9 million euros without a doubt.

    If you had followed the Brazilian league, you would have heard about him. Your current opinion is based solely on your ignorance.

    I don't follow the Brazilian league but I know one thing about it:
    When there are real talents there they get extremely hyped and their prices get very high due to various European top clubs competing to sign them.
    Has this happened with 9m Yerry Mina?
    Maybe if you do follow the Brazilian league you can tell us more about him?!

    Douglas was a scrub. The team fans mocked him. Mina is considered by fans and media the best CB in South America.

    For 9m this is a no-brainer.

    Actually seen him play 2 or 3 times, tall , confident on the ball and a danger at set pieces, a bit casual at times and can be a bit too cavalier with his forward runs

    CB's are going for a lot of money these days, and 9 million for Yerry would be a steal no doubt.

    I'm skeptical about this deal for three reasons:
    1. I don't trust Barto and his board
    2. All European top clubs have scouts in South America and yet it doesn't seem that too many of them have noticed him.
    3. The relatively low price.

    Why do some people find it so strange that someone has some doubts about this deal?
    I think I know the answer: How can anyone dare to doubt Robert Fernandez, Braida and Segura?!
