£36m Rated Barcelona Star ‘Ready’ To Leave La Liga Giants And Targets Move To City

Barcelona defender Nelson Semedo is “ready and willing to leave” the Camp Nou this summer, with his preferred destination being Manchester City, according to Sport.

The Catalan newspaper claims the Citizens have already offered Joao Cancelo in exchange for the Barca fullback, but the La Liga club are only interested in cash for the player.

Semedo’s asking price is €40m (£36m), which is a pretty reasonable figure considering the 26-year-old still has two years remaining on his contract.

It is believed Barcelona are very keen to raise funds in their attempts to sign Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez and Juventus’s Miralem Pjanic and, despite Semedo having played 29 games this season, they are prepared to let him go.

With City still having Cancelo on their books, though, it is likely that they will have to offload the Portuguese international before making an official approach for his replacement.

The fullback only joined from Juventus last summer, but he has struggled for game time under manager Pep Guardiola, having started just eight league games this season.
