Barca are broke.
Semedo is unwanted.
Jorge Mendes is his agent.

Looks better than cancelo,to me...
Even if he is, if he's 2nd choice RB behind Sergi Roberto (who originally wasn't a RB), is he going to displace Walker? If Cancelo goes, we should go for Max Aarons. Younger, cheaper, English and wouldn't demand to be first choice for 1-2 years, which would help the squad balance more.

Roberto is better offensively than Semedo which is why he starts. I don't really want Semedo but I also don't know if Aarons will be good enough for us in the near future. He's high rated but that's probably mainly due to his nationality and his performances last season in the championship. He hasn't impressed this season and nothing about him stands out. He's a jack of all trades, average at every department. He doesn't have a redeeming quality like Walker has his physicality, TAA has his crosses or Wan Bissaka has his tackling. He also looks quite short and weak, there's no way he's 178cm

I'd go for Atal as Walker backup, he's very similar to Cancelo but maybe even better going forward. Then try to fill HG quotas in other ways, maybe getting Aké as Otamendi's replacement

It seems like a mandatory signing, every summer we have to sign new RB.
Cancelo didn't have even a small run in his natural position because Walker was fit and doing well all season.

There is no need to undermine Cancelo yet.

I don't think this is about Cancelo being undermined, rather him not wanting to be here anymore.

I agree with the premise of your comment though. Both Danilo and Cancelo were unecessary signings and we should have just stuck with Maffeo as Walker's backup. I've said recently that Semedo just seems like another one of those signings when we could easily just give Porro or Couto a shot, or bring back someone like Frimpong as he's had a great season.

Yes, it's a risk, but you can't plan your transfer strategy on Walker getting injured, especially when he's got such a great record. We need someone that can offer cover for 20 odd games a season and that means we don't need a £40m rotation option again after the last two have become unsettled.

Its unacceptable that City pays 60m to get you, and 1 year later you decide to leave !

Should respect the contract he signed and wait for his chance.
