​Benfica line up Semedo replacement as Man Utd move nears completion

Manchester United is becoming increasingly optimistic about their pursuit of Benfica right-back Nelson Semedo.

According to The Sun, the Portuguese club have already lined up their replacement for the 23-year old in Pedro Pereira.

The 19-year old spent his youth career with Benfica before leaving for Sampdoria in 2015.

He recently signed a five-year deal with the club when he returned from Italy in January.

Benfica boss Rui Vitoria is reportedly confident enough to hand the reins over to Peirera once Semedo completes the move to United.
