Mina became the Catalan giants' second signing of the January window, and it has been announced that he will be the club's new No. 24.

The number was last worn by defender Jeremy Mathieu, but has been vacant since the Frenchman left the club in July 2017.

Before Mathieu, Sergi Roberto wore Barca's No. 24, but has since opted for the No. 20 shirt. One of the most famous carriers of Mina's new number was Yaya Toure, who wore the number between 2007 and 2010.

Club legend Andres Iniesta had the No. 24 shirt in the early stages of his first team career, succeeding former Blaugrana captain Carles Puyol.

Roger Garcia, Andreu Fontas and Fernando Couto are others who have worn the No. 24 shirt before, according to Transfermarkt.

Meanwhile, Coutinho is yet to receive a shirt number at Camp Nou, with reports in Marca suggesting he will take over Javier Mascherano's No. 14. The Argentine is expected to join a Chinese club this week, which would allow Coutinho to finally get his number.

Do you think Mina can follow in the footsteps of Puyol and Toure at Barca? Have your say in the comments section below.
