Fransisco Trincao, despite spending a lot of time warming the bench in the last season, remains one of the more talented youngsters of this generation. With Barcelona making some impressive additions to their attack for the next season, Trincao will find it tough to find himself minutes on the pitch and could be on his way to England this summer. Manchester City are one of the potential suitors for the Portugal winger.
Todofichajes understands that Barcelona have offered Trincao to Premier League clubs in order to raise some funds this summer. Ronald Koeman has told the club that Trincao does not fit into his plans for the next season.

Trincao made 28 appearances last season with most of them coming off the bench and the winger registered 3 goals and 2 assists. He looked to be in a good zone whenever he got the chance to play and is certainly one for the future.
The 21-year-old is also said to be offered to the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton and Wolves are said to be leading the race to sign the youngster. This is largely because of the good relationship between the board and the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes.
Manchester City are on the hunt for a striker and it is highly unlikely that the Premier League champions are going to sign their preferred target in Harry Kane as the £150 million price tag that has been slapped on the Englishman seems to be a bit too much even for the financial muscle of the Cityzens, given that he has struggled with ankle injuries in the last few seasons.
Trincao is certainly a good alternative but it would be experimental at this stage to try him out as a striker. The Portuguese however, seems to have the qualities to succeed in England, and with Barcelona looking to offload a few players this summer, Trincao could be a good option on the market.
