Barcelona completes signing of Nelson Semedo from Benfica

Nelson Semedo, 23, is new coach Ernesto Valverde’s third signing of the transfer window, following the arrivals of Gerard Deulofeu and young centre-back Marlon.

Barca announced 24 hours earlier that an initial fee of €30million had been agreed for the Portugal defender who has signed a five-year deal at Camp Nou after passing a medical.

President Josep Maria Bartomeu stated this week that they hope to complete “two or three” deals before the window closes next month.
