Barcelona is set to battle Manchester United and Bayern Munich to sign Benfica star Nelsen Semedo, according to reports emerging in Spain.
Ernesto Valverde wastes no time to come up with a plan for the coming season as he seeks to revive Barcelona from their slumber, the coach sees the 23-year-old right-back as a must get.
Samedo had a very good season with the Portuguesechampions Benfica last season and according to speculation he is keen to switch to Barcelona according to Marca – and the club that gets closest to his €50 million valuations will secure his signature.
Barca, who are believed to have contacted the defender’s representatives, are desperate to strengthen their backline – particularly on the right-hand side – which was occupied by Sergi Roberto for large parts of last season.
Samedo favours a move to Barcelona if the Camp Nou giant can meet the valuation of the defender a switch to Barcelona will be very much likely and if they don’t the likes of Manchester United and Bayern Munich are also interested in the player and they are waiting in the wings to get the deal done if the move to Barcelona doesn’t fall through.
