While there’s still no indication of the fee, recent reports suggested it would take something in the region of €35 million to land the full-back, who will sign a five-year deal.
Either way it’s finally a great signing for Barca, with Semedo signed in time to join the club on their US tour.
Welcome to Barca Nelsinho!
