Man City eye transfer swoop for Barcelona’s Nelson Semedo to ramp up pressure on Covidiot Kyle Walker – The Sun


PEP GUARDIOLA sees Barcelona full-back Nelson Semedo as an ideal option to turn up the heat on Kyle Walker.

Manchester City are eyeing up the Portuguese defender and could offer his countryman Joao Cancelo in a swap deal.

Guardiola hoped the 26-year-old £60million signing from Juventus last summer would provide the competition which he believes Walker needs.

But it has not worked out for Cancelo – as he started just eight Premier League matches before the competition was halted.


Walker is waiting to be disciplined by the club – who said they were disappointed with him for breaking lockdown rules by inviting call girls to his flat last month.

He is not expected to be sold despite his conduct but Guardiola is hoping he will have to battle for his place in the side next season.

City are looking around at their options and are aware that Semedo could be available due to Barca’s financial difficulties.

The Etihad giants are being cautious with their own summer plans due to the impact of the coronavirus and the threat of a Champions League ban hanging over them.

However, the possibility of a swap deal with the Catalan giants is something that could appeal to both parties.
