FC Barcelona target Ajax side as Nélson Semedo’s replacement
Bayern compete with Barca for the American
Eleven months after choosing to represent the U.S. over the Netherlands, teenage fullback Sergiño Dest appears to be in the middle of another significant tug of war: Bayern Munich or Barcelona.
Sergiño Dest (19 years old) is on the agenda of FC Barcelona. The departure of Nélson Semedo is a more than real possibility,
even though until a few weeks ago its renovation was negotiated,
and the Azulgrana club is attentive to the market in case it should be looking for a replacement.
And the one ronald Koeman, the Barcelona manager, likes the most is the young right-back of Ajax Amsterdam.
Mundo Deportivo already reported in its edition last Wednesday that the Ajax lanekeeper had returned to the front line of the blue club’s signing movements.
The decision to sell Semedo has taken shape because its agent, Jorge Mendes,
has submitted an offer of between 40 and 45 million by the Portuguese footballer.
And Barca considers that, as the market is, it is a more than interesting option. However, Semedo’s march would mean a vacancy in the blue-rant lag.
In this context, the side that Ronald Koeman likes the most is Sergiño Dest,
side of Ajax who likes him very much for his huge offensive projection and his refined technique with the ball.
Dest is a very offensive side, who is compared in some respects to Dani Alves, who was the master of the blue-side from 2008 to 2016.

The American is a versatile player, as he can play on both. He is right-handed but has repeatedly acted on his team on the left as an emergency solution,
increasing his appeal to the Blue-rated technical secretariat.
He is also a great supporter of FC Barcelona, as he has made clear on his social networks on more than one occasion.
Sergiño Dest is one of the protagonists of the transfer market.
Ajax’s side is one of the most intended by European clubs and Bayern would have won the race to take over the Dutch player.
Bayern Munich reach agreement with Barca target Sergiño Dest
According to Bild, the Bavarian ensemble would already have an agreement with Dest.
The side would commit for the next five seasons and defend the Bayern jersey.
However, the handover is not closed. Bayern do not accept the economic conditions required by Ajax and at the moment the operation is stopped.
The Germans, who already have the player’s yes according to Bild, would be expecting a rebate from the Dutch team.
FC Barcelona, for its part, remains attentive to the situation. The club has no money to undertake any operations although Ajax would make things easier for them because of the good relations between clubs.
However, if Bayern raise their offer and give what Ajax ask for, Sergiño Dest will be Bayern’s player for the next five seasons.
