Talks over a renewal ended recently and Semedo, whose contract expires in 2022, has to move this summer to prevent his price falling further.

Semedo wanted to leave last year but Barça fought to keep him, promising him regular football. City, along with Atletico Madrid, were one of the teams that wanted him them but the Catalans didn’t want to listen to offers.

But things have changed and the financial crisis brought about by the coronavirus pandemic means the club have had to change certain plans.

Barça and Manchester City are in advanced talks over a deal that could take Nelson Semedo to the English club. Pep Guardiola’s side want the right-back and have put various formulas on the table.
