Official: FC Barcelona's Second Signing Revealed

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jul 14, 2017 08:42 AM @KurtLaduma

Spanish giants FC Barcelona have confirmed their second signing ahead of the 2017/18 season.

10 Most Expensive Players Of All-Time

The Catalan club have been searching for a right-back in recent weeks, with players like Djibril Sidibe, Hector Bellerin and Joao Cancelo being linked with the club.

Barca have now confirmed the signing of Nelson Semedo from Portuguese giants Benfica, who will undergo his medical on Friday.

“FC Barcelona and Benfica have reached an agreement for the transfer of Nelson Semedo, pending medical tests on Friday in Barcelona,” the club said in a statement on their website.

“The right-back has progressed quickly to the highest level, both with his club and the Portuguese national side, whom he represented at the last Confederations Cup.

“He was a key player in Benfica’s treble-winning campaign and in two seasons has played 63 games, scoring two goals in the Portuguese League and one more in the Champions League.

“At a height of 180cm, Semedo is an offensive full-back with superb physical attributes and he will be the ninth Portuguese to defend the Barça shirt.”

Four Players Still On Mourinho’s Radar?

The 23-year-old represented Benfica on 63 occasions, winning five trophies at the club, while also winning the league’s Breakthrough Player of the Year in the previous campaign.

Do you think Semedo will succeed at Barca? Let us know in the comments section below.
