FC Barcelona confirmed the departure of Nélson Semedo on Wednesday. The right back signs a three-year deal with Wolverhampton Wanderers, with the option of two more seasons.

The Premier League club pays Barcelona a transfer fee of 30 million euros. This amount can rise to 40 million euros through bonuses. The 26-year-old Portuguese still had a contract until mid-2022 at Camp Nou, but was allowed to leave from trainer Ronald Koeman.

It is not the first time that FC Barcelona has managed to sell a superfluous player this transfer period. On Tuesday, Arturo Vidal left the club for an adventure at Internazionale, where he signed a two-year deal. Ivan Rakitic previously left for Seville and Luis Suárez is associated with Atlético Madrid.

Semedo made the switch from Benfica to FC Barcelona in 2017 for around 35 million euros and played 124 official matches with the Catalans in three seasons. Last season, the Portuguese still had a basic place under trainer Ernesto Valverde and his successor Quique Setién.

“I want to thank Barcelona for making my dream come true,” Semedo wrote in a short statement on Tuesday evening Instagram. “Thank you for developing myself as a player and as a person. It was three great years that I will never forget.”

Semedo’s departure explains Barcelona’s sudden interest in Sergiño Dest. Ajax’s right back had long faced a switch to Bayern Munich, but according to Spanish media, Barcelona is now close to an agreement with the team from Amsterdam.
