Man United Could Sign 23-year-old Versatile Defender In The Summer

La Liga giants Barcelona have reportedly entered the transfer race for Man United transfer target Nelson Semedo, according to the Naticias ao Minuto reports.

Reports from Portugal earlier last month revealed that the 23-year-old Benfica right-back has agreed to sign for Man United during the January transfer window. However, Red Devils have failed to materialise the deal in winter and scheduled it for the summer.

Noticias ao Minuto suggested that the Portuguese champions and United had agreed on a £35m summer deal in principle for the 23-year-old full-back who is capable of operating in both flanks.

However, it seems now that La Liga giants Barcelona have joined the race and eyeing a move for Portuguese sensation.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, the Catalans have sent scouts to Lisbon on Sunday night to watch Benfica starlet in action.

Barca spies were tracking a host of players. However, it is believed that their main interest was Semedo.


In December, the Portugal international defender has suggested that his future lies with Benfica.

“They can be calm, and you can rest easy,” he said.

“I’m completely focused on Benfica, and I hope to continue here for many years to come.


“I’m helping the club to achieve its objectives.”
