Barcelona have tonight confirmed they have agreed a deal with Benfica for right-back Nelson Semedo.

The 23-year-old will now have a medical tomorrow, before completing his move to Camp Nou.

This is a deal that has been talked about for weeks, but Barcelona look to have finally got their man, while also solving their problem right-back position.

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.
