But the Portuguese super-talent is looking like a great piece of business for Barca already.
The Catalan club have been handed the chance to make a net profit of €29m on Trincao.
The offer, transmitted to Barcelona by ‘super agent’ Jorge Mendes, came from an English club and was rejected.
Trincao is considered one of the most important players in the rejuvenation of Barca’s ageing squad.
Along with Pedri, Ansu Fati, Riqui Puig and Ronald Araujo, Trincao is part of plans for the future at Camp Nou.
His potential is so high that Barca dismissed the big money offer that would have helped ease their financial problems.
The Premier League club has not been named but is described as ‘powerful’, narrowing down the candidates.
Trincao has a €500m release clause in his Barcelona contract, which runs until June 2025.
In 27 Liga NOS appearances (17 starts) for Braga this season, Trincao scored eight and assisted six goals.
