The past summer, the Athletic of Madrid tightened a lot so that Nélson Semedo went in in the 'operation Griezmann' or even to be able to close the signing separately. It was a request expresses of Diego Pablo Simeone that remained with the honey in the lips, since the FC Barcelona refused the possibility to leave leave to the Portuguese defence.

In that occasion, commanded the sportive reasons: Nélson Semedo was considered the headline in the right side and Sergi Roberto would advance his position to the centre of the field to leave step to Moussa Wagué like acting. But finally, the African has not convinced and the Catalan has done with the place in front of the luso, that has not had continuity by the injuries or a performance no so high as it expected .

Thus, a year after this offer of the Athletic of Madrid, the stage has changed. Now, the sportive direction no longer considers that the luso was intocable and, besides, the club is conscious that it is one of the players that has a lot of poster in Europe and whose sale would help to square the accounts of the club before facing new signings, as the ones of Neymar​ or Lautaro Martínez.

Given the circumstances, the FC Barcelona will listen proposed by Nélson Semedo without denying to be able to accept any of them that offer a quantity of money the sufficiently succulent. Besides, according to the informations published by the newspaper Sport, Éric Abidal kept a meeting recently in Dubai with Jorge Mendes, representative of the Barcelona side, to speak of the plans of future.

The result of said meeting would have been that all the parts agree: the Barça needs the money of his future sale and the player could leave to an important team to have the paper of protagonist that has not had in the Camp Nou in the three last seasons, in addition to having a higher agreement and to the height of a player of his quality.

Ricardo Pereira could be his substitute

As FCBN informed recently, Ricardo Pereira, side of the Leicester, would be one of the big candidates to relieve to Semedo in the FC Barcelona. In fact, his name would have been put on of the table by part of Jorge Mendes in the meeting, although the culés would not have the intention to spend the 40 million his value of market.
