Barcelona’s Nelson Semedo in shock move to Manchester United
Barcelona defender, Nelson Semedo could leave the club in this January’s transfer window to Manchester United.
The lack of game time has forced Semedo into a corner and Barca will finally let him move elsewhere in the search of regular football, according to Spanish outlet Sport.
The Catalans would reportedly prefer to hold on to the 26-year-old but are willing to cash in given the situation.
According to Spanish newspaper, Sport, Barcelona are ready to sell Semedo for €50million and Man United are a likely destination for the 26-year-old despite the fact the Red Devils have signed Aaron Wan-Bissaka last summer.
Semedo has played a full game in just eight of Barca’s 18 La Liga games so far this campaign.
Despite the fact United splashed out on Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the summer, they have been long time admirers of the Portuguese and could still bring him in to play on the left.
The report claimed that Sporting Directorof Barcelona, Eric Abidal has met Semedo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, in Dubai to discuss the Portugal international’s future at the club.
There is a general feeling United need strikers this month and while this transfer window may be too soon for the Red Devils to move for Semedo, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted they do have money to spend.
Speaking on New Year’s Eve, the Norwegian said:
“I’m optimistic we can keep players fit and if the right ones become available we do have the resources and I do have the backing from the board.
“One addition, and if you get two additions, of course that will be competition for places.

DAILY POST had reported that Semedo was among the ten players Barcelona wanted to sell last summer.
The right-back has not really lived up to expectations at the Camp Nou since joining the club from Benfica in 2017.
