According to various reports in Spain from SPORT and Barca Universal, Barca are strongly considering the possibility of selling Nélson Semedo to Man City as part of João Cancelo swap.

They then plan to offer the City full-back to Inter Milan as part of a Lautaro Martínez deal.

It’s a complicated three-way deal. However All the three players have given reportedly given the ok to the clubs.

Semedo would be a fantastic signing. He has speed and can attack fairly well. With a bit of coaching up defensively he can slide in to the left back or compete with Kyle Walker.

Reports from England have Barcelona including some cash for the swap, but the details seem less sure and could just be a straight swap.

Semedo, has been quoted as loving the idea of playing for Pep and would rather play in England than Italy.

Will see if this gains when/if a transfer window opens.

Thoughts on Semedo and a swap deal?
