Having an interesting quotation, on the transfer market, Nelson Semedo would have gotten used, to the idea of a departure of FC Barcelona.
Days go by and, for the time being, not much is happening on the FC Barcelona side.
Anxious to strengthen before attacking the 2020-21 exercise, the Blaugrana have targeted, several players able to strengthen, the squad of Ronald Koeman (Memphis Depay, Eric Garcia, Sergino Dest…).
But here’s the thing: before being able to buy, the Catalan club has to sell. The departure of Luis Suarez is more than ever in the news, even if the Uruguayan international could be doubled by Edin Dzeko on the side of Juventus Turin.
The Dutch coach is also not counting on Arturo Vidal, who is said to be close to Inter Milan.
These are all in their thirties, but a younger element would also be on the “transferable” list, namely Nelson Semedo.
Semedo’s value is estimated at €40 million.
The 26-year-old Portuguese international, has established himself as the starting right full-back, and played 42 games in all competitions last season. His market value is relatively high, (around 40 million euros according to the specialized website Transfermarkt) and it is for this reason in particular, that Barcelona’s managers would like to sell him before October 5.
Mundo Deportivo also reveals that the former Benfiquiste, whose interests are defended by the very influential Jorge Mendes, would have got used to the idea of a departure from Barça.
If it were to materialize, this transfer would thus allow the FCB to have more room for maneuver to recruit. And it would be better not to delay, because time is beginning to run out…
