On Sunday, Barcelona and Juventus reached a verbal agreement for a move that will send Nelson Semedo to Turin and bring Miralem Pjanic and Mattia De Sciglio to Camp Nou.
Per sources of Catalan paper Sport in the deal, Semedo likes the idea, and will negotiate. His agent Jorge Mendes already has the basis for a deal ready.
The player trade will also see Juventus handing out 25 million euros to the Catalans because Semedo is the highest value player.
Semedo and Juve are indeed at work on their deal at these moments. The market value of Semedo is 50 million euros. The 27-year-old has done well in the past three seasons at Barca but hasn’t nailed his slot ahead of Sergi Roberto.
Meanwhile, Barca has already concluded contracts with Pjanic and De Sciglio and it only leaves the Portuguese to sort his plans out.
Pjanic, 30 years old, will join Barca. He moved from Roma to Juve, for €35 million. He’s in the final stage of his career and Sarri at Juve didn’t take to him much.
De Sciglio, on the other hand, was propelled to success in Milan and moved to Juve for 8.5 million euros three years ago. He’s played 39 games for Italy and had an odd season in La Liga due to injuries and form playing only eight times.
Barcelona will allegedly also spend 25 million on Lautaro Martinez.
After all the competitions are wrapped up the players will move. The Champions League could go on through August. Semedo would play for Juve in it and Pjanic and De Sciglio with Barca only in the case that the Champions League is held in September.
After that, players meant to transfer will do so, before the new season.
