Nelson Semedo’s future at Barcelona is once again up in the air.

The Portuguese’s time at the Camp Nou has been like a rollercoaster, with ups followed swiftly by downs, and this summer has been no different.

The 26-year-old was initially used as a bargaining tool to try and entice the likes of Miralem Pjanic and Lautaro Martinez to the club, with the former having now joined after Arthur went the other way and with negotiations for the latter still believed to be ongoing.

However, the fact that no club could be found for the right-back led to Barcelona performing a u-turn and opening negotiations over a new deal.

Josep Maria Bartomeu even listed Semedo as one of the club’s non-transferable players.

But the Blaugrana baulked at his wage demands and put him up for sale again.

This matter was discussed with Jorge Mendes, the player’s agent, as he spent time with Blaugrana directors on Wednesday.

Already, Barcelona are looking at potential replacements should Semedo depart and one of those is Hector Bellerin, the La Masia graduate who Barcelona have tried to bring home in previous summers.

They’ve already been in contact, but it could be a difficult deal since they don’t have the funds to offer a huge transfer fee to Arsenal.
