If the reports are to be believed, super-agent Jorge Mendes expects Barcelona star Nelson Semedo to join Manchester United. Mendes represents the Portuguese international, who is said to be looking for a way out this winter.
Having brokered various transfer deals with Manchester United, Mendes expects the top echelons at the Old Trafford to come forward and sign the Barcelona star.
The super-agent was crucial in landing Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao at the Old Trafford in 2014, and he also facilitated the moves for David De Gea and Jose Mourinho over the past few years.
And, now, Catalan newspaper Sport say Mendes wants United to take Semedo off Barcelona’s hands.
Barcelona tried to sell the player to PSG last season in order to sign Neymar, however, the deal didn’t go through and The Portugal international was forced to stay at the Camp Nou, where he has made 15 La Liga appearances this season.
It’s claimed the Red Devils have initiated contact with Barcelona over a transfer and they’re a club with the ‘suitable characteristics’ to close a deal.
United already have Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back and Diogo Dalot as his deputy. If Semedo signs, he may be turned into a winger.
