Without having played a game for Barcelona, the Portugal forward Francisco António Machado Trincao has become one of the best pieces of business in the club's recent history.

Through the super-agent Jorge Mendes, who facilitated a €31 million deal in January, they already have an offer worth €60m from a Premier League club for the youngster. 

Trincao ended the season with Braga -- where he's been in fine form since his move to Barça was confirmed -- and will join up with the Catalans ahead of next season. 

Barça only rubber-stamped that move in January but just six months later have fielded a bid worth almost double what they paid from a Premier League club, which would come with a €29m profit. 

However, Trincao is viewed as a key part of the rejuvenation of the squad. He is 20, 21 in December, and his potential invites excitement, even if the club need to make sales this summer.

But along with Pedri and the three B team players who will step up, Ansu Fati, Riqui Puig and Ronald Araujo, the club consider Trincao a first-team player. 

The offer, from a powerful Premier League club, was interesting because of how much it was worth, but Barça rejected it. 

Trincao has signed a contract with Barcelona until 2025 and the release clause is set at €500m.
