Manchester City have become the latest club to be linked with a move for Barcelona right-back Nelson Semedo but have been told he is not for sale.

According to Sport, Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions have been in touch after a move for Juventus right-back Joao Cancelo stalled.

Barcelona’s response was apparently to point out Semedo’s €100 million buyout clause as they consider him to be non-transferable.

The report also reckons that Barcelona are considering offering the Portugal international a contract extension at some point during the season. His current deal runs until 2022.

There were rumors earlier in the summer that Semedo wanted out because he was not a regular at Barca, but the latest speculation has suggested the club will make him first choice next season.
