According to findings by Comsmedia, three European league sides will be involved in a blockbuster swap deal ever in the history of the transfer market.
As at the time of this report, Barca, Manchester City and Inter Milan are working on a mega swap deal that will involve three players from three top clubs in the region.
Lautaro Martínez, Nélson Semedo, and João Cancelo are the players involved in this prospective blockbuster swap, with money changing hands in the process among the three clubs.
Currently, the signing of Lautaro is almost ready but clubs involved are confused about which player to include in the deal to reduce the cash demanded for the striker.
In another twist, Semedo who was offered to Inter Milan, his wages was considered to be too high. Then, Emerson, who is loaned out to Real Betis, was offered to Milan for some of compensation.
However, despite the praises showered on the Brazilian, his value was considered too low to lower the price enough for Barcelona.
Meanwhile, in England, City had made a bid for Semedo, offering Cancelo to Barcelona to lower the price. That’s when the idea came in to combine both deals, and Barcelona offered Cancelo to Inter.
In the coming weeks, the swap deal will be approved by the Portuguese super agent, Jorge Mendes who represents both right-backs.
In another report, Barcelona is on the verge of including Arturo Vidal for Inter. The Cancelo+Vidal deal to Inter could be around €60 million, in which City will be paying part of the money to get Semedo for Cancelo.
