Lionel Messi wants Nelson Semedo replaced
Barcelona have agreed a deal to sign Frenkie De Jong in the summer and are working on getting Matthijs de Ligt as well. Apart from that, the Catalan club's priority is getting a striker to replace Luis Suarez.
However, Messi has different plans for the club and has asked them to sign a right-back instead. The Argentine is reportedly not happy with Nelson Semedo and does not want Sergi Roberto to be the #1 choice.
As per the same report, Joshua Kimmich is the full-back that Messi wants at Barcelona next season. The German is reportedly set to become a benchwarmer with the arrival of Benjamin Pavard, but the Frenchman can play as a centre-back as well, so things might not be that way.
Regardless of what happens at Bayern Munich, Messi wants Kimmich signed to strengthen the Barcelona defence.
