Juventus rival Manchester City for Nelson Semedo

Barcelona right-back Nelson Semedo is emerging as one of the most wanted players on the transfer market.

The 26-year-old, through agent Jorge Mendes, has frozen contract talks with Barca because they can’t pay him what he wants.

Semedo’s situation has led to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City showing a strong interest. A player swap involving City’s Joao Cancelo has been speculated about in the press.

However, as Fernando Polo of Mundo Deportivo reports, Juventus are now also pressing for the Portugal star.

Juventus have been locked in talks with Barcelona over possible player exchanges centering around Miralem Pjanic.

It is claimed that Juventus want Semedo in return for Pjanic, with Mattia De Sciglio also going the other way.

Semedo is reportedly ‘seduced’ by the possibility of joining English giants Man City. The club’s two-year ban from the Champions League – under appeal – could make him rethink though.

Polo states that yesterday it was Semedo who Juventus were pushing most for during talks. They also like Arthur, who does not want to leave Barca, and defender Jean-Clair Todibo.
