LaLiga giants FC Barcelona have reportedly identified a Manchester City star as a target for next season and are willing to offer the Citizens one of their players in a swap deal.

The Catalan giants are believed to be looking at bolstering their defence for next season and are looking at City full-back Joao Cancelo.

The Telegraph reports that the Catalan giants are willing to offer Nelson Semedo in exchange for the City full-back, who only joined the club this season.

Despite the big-money move from Juventus, Cancelo has failed to make himself a consistent figure in Pep Guardiola's line-up, and has often played second fiddle to Kyle Walker.

As a result of Cancelo's struggles, Barcelona are now looking to end Cancelo's misery by proposing a swap deal that they feel will benefit both clubs.

There are reports that the financial effect of the coronavirus pandemic could have an effect on transfers, which could see more clubs engaging in more swap deals.

The other issue affecting the Citizens is their two-year UEFA Champions League ban, which could put certain transfer targets off in the next couple windows.
