Nelson 26, moved to Barcelona from Benfica in 2017 as a replacement for Dani Alves or provide cover for the versatile Sergio Roberto on the right flank of the defense.

He was signed for a reported fee of €36m from Benfica and has not really lived up to the reputation with several errors and mistakes in the back line.

The club - after the 8-2 defeat to Bayern - has been restructuring with the exit of Rakitic, and the possible exit of Vidal, Suarez.

Barcelona is undergoing restructuring after the dismissal of the former coach, Quique Setien, and the appointment of Ronald Koeman and new sporting director, Ramon Splanes, and the dismissal of Eric Abidal.

The deal is yet to be finalised as we could see more exodus of players from the Catalonia club with new additions such as Eric Garcia and Sergiño Dest.
