Yerry Mina’s short time at Barcelona came to an end this week, as he moved to Premier League side Everton on a five-year deal.

It may not be the last we see of Mina in a Barcelona shirt, as the club have confirmed they inserted a buy-back clause into the deal.

Reports reckon it might cost €60m for Barcelona to bring Mina back. The defender says he would like to return to the Camp Nou.

“Yes, obviously, Barça is wonderful and I would like to be here forever. The colleagues, the technicians, the assistants ... thank each one of them,” he said.

“Now I have to focus on Everton, which is now my club and I’m going to fight to the death for him because he has shown me his confidence.

“I leave with a bittersweet taste because I wanted to show what I have and I have inside me, unfortunately it did not happen, but that’s football and now I’ll have to do it in this wonderful club that is Everton.

“The truth is that I am grateful to God and I leave quietly because I tried to always contribute my bit, I always tried to help on and off the field.”

Mina will now hope he can make an impression in England under Marco Silva. The Toffees have had a busy summer bringing in Richarlison, Lucas Digne, Andre Gomes, Bernard and Mina.
