Barcelona have reportedly rejected an offer of €60m for forward Francisco Trincão, from an unidentified Premier League Club. According to Fabrizio Romano, the club is Leicester City.

The first bid was a loan with an obligation to buy for €50M total. Romano reports, that the talks are still on for the player, who has attracted interest from a host of European clubs.




The Portugal under-21 international joined Barcelona in January for a fee of €31m on a five-year deal with a €500m release clause written into his contract.

Trincão, who was labelled as the New Cristiano Ronaldo, made his professional debut in December 2018 and showed enough promise to attract interest from across Europe. He was joint-top scorer at the European Under-19 Championship in the same year, helping Portugal to the title, and also landed a surprise Taça de Portugal victory this season as Braga beat Porto in the final.
