Barcelona have agreed a deal to sign Benfica right-back Nelson Semedo on a five-year contract, pending a medical.

The Spanish giants released a statement on their website saying the 23-year-old will undergo a medical on Friday.

Reports in Spain say the Catalans will pay a transfer fee of more than £26m for the Portuguese international.

Semedo, who played for Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russia earlier this summer and was sent off in the third-place play-off win over Mexico, had been reportedly linked with a move to Manchester United.

He played 63 times for Benfica in the past two seasons, winning two Primeira Liga titles.

“FC Barcelona and Benfica have reached an agreement for the transfer of Nélson Semedo, pending medical tests on Friday in Barcelona,” a statement on Barcelona’s website said.

“Semedo is an offensive full-back with superb physical attributes and he will be the ninth Portuguese to defend the Barca shirt.”

Barcelona have already re-signed Gerard Deulofeu from Everton on a two-year deal and extended Lionel Messi’s contract until 2021.
