Barcelona signing Trincão "will define a decade" - Braga chief
Francisco Trincão is due to complete his 31m-euro move to Barcelona in July and Braga's president expects big things from the attacker.
Barcelona have secured the signature of Francisco Trincão and Braga president Antonio Salvador believes the attacker will be one of the world's best in 10 years.
Barcelona signing due to join in July, coronavirus permitting
Trincão signed a five-year deal with Barca in January, but his 31-million-euro move to Camp Nou will not come into effect until 1 July. It remains to be seen whether that date will be adhered to due to the suspension of most major sport during the coronavirus pandemic.
A 500m-euro release clause was included in the deal signed by the Portugal Under-21 international, who has scored seven goals in 29 appearances in all competitions for Braga this season.
Trincão will be a hit at Barcelona, says Salvador
In an online meeting with supporters, Salvador tipped Trincão to be a huge success in Spain and assured fans he does not expect further departures.
"We already know we are going to lose one of our great players, one that I consider the best, one that will define a decade from now, which is Trincão," said Salvador.

"As you know, he has been sold to Barcelona. I believe that almost the entire squad will be maintained next season."
He added: "Our squad will increasingly have players from the academy. This is due to the exceptional facilities we created.
"They will provide even more talent. We want a strong core of players that will support players who can move into the line-up."
