The market of signings of the summer 2019 is being very intense for the FC Barcelona, that litigates in several fronts to consolidate a competitive team. The Catalans have done official in the last months a good number of exits, and besides have certified several incorporations that go up the level of the staff. No less important has been his work with some of his stars, that have received offers but have decided to refuse them.

One of the most important cases in the changing room is the one of Nélson Semedo, that during some weeks posed seriously a change of airs. The lisboeta wanted to feel first sword in a group of high level, something that in the Camp Nou was not clear by his alternation with Sergi Roberto and that yes offered him the Juventus, the Athletic of Madrid or the Manchester City, some of which called to his door.

After a time of dangerous reflection, the negative rotunda of the club did him think, and this Thursday has confirmed that will follow dressing of Barcelona. It has done it of explicit form although in any moment has referred to the proposals that arrived him, but his message is easy to understand because it does reference to the answer of the directive and the changing room: "For me it is very it matter to know that there are people that wants me, that in general already is good".

"Play in the Barça is not easy, but think that with the help of players and technicians have improved a lot"

"But know that they want to you where are, your trainer, your team, your president, and want to that you follow, has been very important for me", has confessed in an interview for the official means of the club. "I arrived knowing to the Barça by the TV, a Barça in which it is not easy to play; there are players very good and our way to play is very different to the one of other teams. But I think that with the help of the players and of the technicians have improved a lot", has added.

After signalling that the team keeps growing in this pre-season and appreciate the affection of the fans in turn them by Japan and United States, the luso has referred to a historical of the club: "Dani Alves left a big responsibility for all the players that come to the Barça of side. For me it is the best player that have seen in my position. It is a big responsibility, but also a motivation, and know that I was the elected to do his paper is satisfactory".

Neither it has left to escape the occasion the carrilero of elogiar to one of his mates, with which in occasions shares the right band and with which has showed that compenetra to perfection, so much inside as out of the terrains of game: "To me it likes me a lot play with Ousmane because we are players very alike and understand us well. I think that the relation that have out of the field helps a lot, because we carry us very well".

The Barça complete his reform of the right side

The decision of Semedo to park his doubts would have to see with the bet of the Barça for the right-handed side, that has left him like first option. In this campaign, everything aims to that Sergi Roberto will return at last to the centre of the field, since the promotion of Moussa Wagué to the first team situates him like possible escudero of the ex of the Benfica. It will be necessary to see how works the team with the new roles, whose aim is to benefit to the community.
