La Liga: Barcelona sign Portuguese full back Nelson Semedo from Benfica”

Barça announced on Thursday night that a deal pending medical tests, believed to be worth €30m, is in place for Semedo to make the switch from Lisbon and he has already arrived in the city on Friday morning to complete the final details of the transfer.

The likes of Gerard Pique, Cesc Fabregas and Denis Suarez all made moves back to Catalonia over the course of the last decade, but Xavi is sceptical about the policy of bringing academy players home.

We'll bring you further news relating to the completion of the signing when it becomes available. I find it baffling.

In May, Benfica president Luís Filipe Vieira dropped a heavy hint that the Eagles would be focusing on earning revenue from player sales this close season, and it has come to pass. The first-choice goalkeeper, right-back and centre-back have been sold for huge fees, while rumours suggesting Spanish left-back Alex Grimaldo may be leaving rumble on.

"I have to report back for pre-season and now is the time for me to just enjoy with my team-mates in Spain for a few days".

Barcelona have agreed a deal to sign Portugal defender Nelson Semedo from Benfica.

The 27-year-old Aleix Vidal, who can fill in at right back or on the right wing, missed three months of the campaign with an ankle injury suffered in early February.
