Manchester City In Talks With Barcelona Over Huge Swap Deal

Manchester City In Talks With Barcelona Over Huge Swap Deal

Manchester City are in advanced talks with Barcelona for Nelson Semedo - with Joao Cancelo also involved in the deal.

City are keen to strengthen the right-back area and Pep Guardiola is keen to bring Portuguese international Semedo to the Etihad.

Per Spanish outlet SPORT, the current Premier League champions are set to offer Cancelo in the deal despite him only signing from Juventus last summer.

Cancelo has failed to nail down a starting spot in the City line-up and has been limited to 11 Premier League games this season.

Kyle Walker has remained City's key right-back, while Benjamin Mendy and Oleksandr Zinchenko have operated on the left.

Barcelona have reportedly slapped a £39 million price tag on Semedo but a deal for the 26-year-old could be completed in the 'coming weeks'.

His agent is Jorge Mendes and the super agent has been given permission to negotiate the Portuguese international's exit.

He has feature more for Barca than Cancelo has for City, making 21 appearances in La Liga as his side battled bitter rivals Real Madrid at the top of the table.

Semedo being allowed to leave adds to the rumours that Quique Setien's side would sell nearly every player this summer to fund transfers for Neymar and Lautaro Martinez.

The tweet above when translated reads: "The news of @ffpolo and @sergisoleMD Regarding that Arthur has a foot and a half in Juventus, it is the confirmation that in this Barça, as I said, except for Lionel Messi and Marc-Andre ter Stegen, everyone is transferable.

"They need money to sign Neymar and Lautaro [Martinez]. Scary."

Arthur has since denied he is leaving Barcelona and wants to remain at the club.
