According to a recent report from The Telegraph, as relayed by SPORT, Barcelona are apparently eager to land Man City’s summer defensive signing Joao Cancelo and could be willing to offer Nelson Semedo in a swap deal – with a handful of Sky Blues gushing over the news on Twitter.
Responding to a tweet by Man City Xtra, it appears the general consensus among this group of supporters is that they would be more than willing to let Cancelo go the other way if it meant securing Semedo – with the summer recruit finding it hard to oust Kyle Walker from his place in the team.
Would you swap Cancelo for Semedo?
Walker’s form hasn’t helped either considering the Englishman has arguably been one of our most impressive defenders this season, so far only Fernandinho has featured more regularly in the back four according to WhoScored.
Now, with this rumour coming to light, some supporters think it is high time we cut our losses with Cancelo and go ahead with the swap deal – find all of their best comments down below.
Semedo 🇵🇹 is much better than Cancelo 🇵🇹 and I think will be good deal but, only if he can play as LB because RB you have already Walker 🏴 and Y. Couto 🇧🇷. In Barça he did few times and was good playing as LB. Will see…

That’s a good deal imo. Tbh we don’t need an RB rn tho Walker is playing sick

This is a dub if true, but I’m disappointed that Pep didn’t really give us a chance to see the best of Cancelo

This is a huge dub Semedo is definitely fast enough and good enough both defensively and attacking wise for city
