BARCELONA SIGN NELSON SEMEDO FOR €30 MILLION FROM BENFICA

The Portugal international is set to become the club's third signing of the summer following the acquisitions of Marlon and Gerard Delores.


Benfica right-back Nelson Semedo has completed his €30 million move to Barcelona following a successful medical on Friday.

The 23-year-old became a priority target for Barcelona this month after it became clear they couldn't get Arsenal's Hector Bellerin. Barca announced on Thursday that they had reached a deal for Semedo, after their transfer chief flew to Lisbon to negotiate them down from their steep €50m valuation.

We understands the Catalunya club will pay €300 up front with €5m bonuses across a five-year contract.
Semedo, who has six caps for Portugal, is now in Barcelona and will join up with his team-mates for Friday evening’s training session.


He's new coach Ernesto Valverde's third signing of the transfer window, following the return of Gerard Deulofeu and arrival of young Centre-back Marlon.

President Josep Maria Bartomeu stated this week that they hope to complete "two or three" deals before the window closes next month. Last season's La Liga runners-up have also been linked with Brazilian midfielder Paulinho and
Manchester United's Ander Herrera .
Barcelona face the first match of the new season on June 22 when they play Juventus in the International Champions Cup, a pre-season tournament taking place across the globe.
