Barca and Manchester City are actively negotiating an agreement that would allow Nelson Semido to join the English club. Pep Guardiola’s team needs the right defender and different formulas are on the table.
City officials have agreed to include Joe Cancella in the deal, but they will also pay Baria in advance because Semido has a higher market value. Maybe an agreement will be reached in the coming weeks. Baria gave the green light to Semedo manager George Mendes to agree to the players’ leave.
The team needs 45 million euros but is ready to exchange it. Negotiations for an update have recently been finalized, and Semido, whose contract expires in 2022, will have to make changes in the heat to avoid another drop in its price. Last year, Semedo tried to leave, but Bara struggled to keep his promise of regular football.
The city were among the teams that needed it with Atletico de Madrid, but the Catalans did not want to listen to suggestions. With the fact that Mendes offered Semedo, City moved on. You feel like you can easily join the Premier League. He must sign a deal with Railways, for which he paid 40 million to the Juventus. He does not go to England.
Initially, Baria needed cash, but Cancello’s likelihood is that slim. The Spanish champions are considering a new City app, and sources say a deal is imminent.
