Barcelona full-back's move to Man City 'much closer' - Guardiola see's him as a 'priority'

Matt Astbury

Barcelona full-back Nelson Semedo is now 'much closer' to a move to Manchester City, according to Saturday's edition of Mundo Deportivo as relayed by Sport Witness.

Semedo has been singled out as a 'priority' signing for the club and manager Pep Guardiola. And with a deal involving current full-back Joao Cancelo possibly in the works, City would most definitely be in the market for a right-back.

Original reports from the Catalan press claimed that Semedo was set for a move to Juventus, however, these negotiations have collapsed in the past few days.

Nelson Semedo's arrival at the Etihad Stadium would provide some much-needed competition for England international Kyle Walker in the right-back position.
