According to a report from Marca, Pep Guardiola and co are not interested in swapping £60 million summer signing Joao Cancelo for Nelson Semedo in the upcoming transfer window – resulting in some City fans drooling over the news on Twitter. 

Previous reports had indicated that City were looking to offload Cancelo, who has started just eight Premier League games since his arrival from Juventus, in exchange for Barcelona defender Semedo – but Marca have since claimed that the Sky Blues are not displaying an interest.

The Catalans full-back has featured far more regularly under Quique Setién by comparison, starting 16 La Liga matches, but a breakdown in extension talks has forced Barca to contemplate selling.

However, despite his seeming availability, City remain unconvinced – and plenty of supporters appear relieved to hear that news.

While Semedo has his credentials, the form of Kyle Walker this season has debatably outweighed any need for a new right-back.

Here’s how supporters flocked to the news on Twitter.
