Nelson Semedo

The priority of Manchester United in the transfer window is the signing of midfielders and attackers but that has not stopped the Red Devils from being linked with defenders.

Barcelona defender Nelson Semedo has surprisingly emerged as a top defensive target for sleeping Premier League giants Manchester United.

Catalan media outlet Sport revealed the interest of Manchester United in Nelson Semedo.

The Portuguese right-back can provide Manchester United with the necessary ammunition as an attacking defender ahead of current first choice Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Manchester United splashed the cash on Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the summer but he has not been able to reach the attacking level required from a fullback at Old Trafford.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is more of a defensive-minded player from the right side of defence unlike Nelson Semedo who is a more attack-minded player that was signed by Manchester United for £50m from Crystal Palace last summer.

The England junior international is in his first season at Manchester United.

Nelson Semedo has provided three assists in 11 starts in the Spanish La Liga this season to further highlight his status as a potent attacking weapon from right-back.

The former Benfica player has started just 11 games from the 18 league games this season as manager Ernesto Valverde has preferred Sergio Roberto at right-back in the other games.
