Barcelona seal deal for Semedo

Barcelona seal deal for Semedo

Semedo had also been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United earlier this summer.

The Spanish club are on the hunt for a new right-back this summer and they have been assessing a number of options.

Barcelona have failed to fill the void which was left by Dani Alves' exit last summer, with Sergi Roberto and Aleix Vidal failing to impress in Catalunya.

The 37-year-old, who has admitted he'd like to be Barcelona manager one day, did not respond positively to questions about bringing Bellerin back, and questioned his decision to leave in the first place.

United Kingdom government withholds extremism report, citing security concerns
Rudd suggests the government wants to protect witnesses or, more broadly, "personal information" contained in the report. These, it said, taught "deeply conservative forms of Islam" to individuals who became "of extremist concern".

"I have not seen him play much but let me say one thing - I would find it hard to sign a player that we [Barcelona] had previously had at the club", he told Sport. But I would be in favor of players who have not been here over those coming back. Why do they leave when they are just 16 or 17?

"The truth is that I am very surprised by what they have done".

The Spaniard was given time off after competing in the European Under-21 Championships, where Spain lost 1-0 to Germany in the final. He is a football player with Barca DNA and he is showing at Arsenal that he is on another level.

HECTOR BELLERIN has dropped a subtle hint he is set to stay at Arsenal as Barcelona turn their attention elsewhere. That's my philosophy: "you were here, you wanted to leave and now you don't return", he stressed. Like Toral, he left because his mum's English.
