Barcelona confirm Semedo transfer
Los Azulgranas confirmed the signing of the Benfica right-back in a five-year deal worth 30 million euros, plus five more in add-ons.
Sealing the deal
Barcelona's technical secretary, Robert Fernández, flew to Lisbon on Thursday morning for the express purpose of sealing a deal to bring the 23-year-old defender to Catalonia. Semedo had been on Barcelona's radar for a large part of last season as Los Culés were seeking to bolster the right side of defence.
