“Leicester wants to rent Barça acquisition of 31 million directly: option of 50 million”


FC Barcelona paid 31 million euros at the end of January to take over Francisco Trincão from Sporting Braga in the summer, but can immediately resell or even sell the 20-year-old Portuguese. Leicester City is said to be expressly interested in him.

Diario SPORT recently reported that an unnamed Premier League club had as much as € 60 million left for Trincão. Sky Sports let Tuesday know that Leicester City is the club in question: The Foxes would have a rental deal with FC Barcelona, ​​including a purchase option of fifty million euros. Atalanta Bergamo is also in the market for the five-time international of Portugal, according to reports. It is still unclear whether Barcelona wants to involve Trincão in the first team next season.

The attacker, born in Viana do Castelo, made his debut in the 2018/2019 season in the Braga main squad and made his breakthrough last season. Thanks to eight league goals from Trincão, Braga finished fourth in the Primeira Liga and may enter Europe next season.
