Finally, FC Barcelona have stepped into the Summer Transfer Market to grab Portugese 23 year old Right Back Nélson Semedo. While there’s still no official declaration of the fee, recent reports suggested it would take something in the region of €35 million to land the full-back, who will sign a five-year deal with the Catalan Club.
Following the news, Semedo is willing to join the team immediately after medical for the pre-season tour to USA. Semedo will play as a right back; the position Barca are not knitting too well. The arrival of Semedo will also invite challenges to Aleix Vidal to perform better. Semedo has played 10,607 minutes with Benefica and has 8 goals, 21 assists and no direct send offs. With no defensive errors and astounding 90+ tackles successfully completed, Nelsinho is ready to come to Camp Nou.
