The Colombian international joined the Catalan giants from Palmeiras in a deal worth €11.8million.
 
Mina, who signed a five-year deal with Barca, reveals he was impressed with Messi' humility.
 
"For me, he [Messi] is the best in the world. The first impression I got of him was one of humility," Mina was quoted as saying by FourFourtTwo.
 
"I got goosebumps when Messi approached me with Suarez in the dressing room."
 
The defender also explained why he stepped onto to the Camp Nou barefoot during his presentation.
 
"There is a saying in my country that says, 'Touch the land you want to conquer with the sole of your feet.'  And here I want to make history with everyone. I always do it and I hope to succeed," he added.
