Semedo’s time at Barca

Nelson Semedo has been at Barcelona since the summer of 2017 when he moved from Benfica.

The Catalonian side are believed to have paid around £32m for the right-back’s services.

Nelson’s debut season would see him make 36 appearances across all competitions, earning two assists.

The 25-year-old would feature more heavily this past season, playing 46 games, scoring one and assisting three.

Despite the solid amount of game time the defender has been getting, SPORT reported back in June that Semedo wanted to leave FC Barcelona.

Now, on Monday the 29th of July, SPORT have reported on a potential destination for the want-away full-back.

According to Spanish outlet SPORT, Manchester City have recently asked about Semedo.

However, as per SPORT, Barca are said to have referred the Citizens to Semedo’s release clause, which SPORT have previously claimed to be €100m.

Barca are also said to have rejected an offer from Atletico Madrid this summer with SPORT asserting that the La Liga champions believe in Semedo and want to offer him a new deal.

Manchester City could well be turning their attention to Semedo after it was reported that Juventus no longer want to sell right-back Joao Cancelo this summer.

There had previously been speculation that Pep Guardiola’s side had bid £50m for the Juve full-back.
