FC Barcelona see Francisco Trincão as a midfielder, despite his main position so far being on the wing, according to a new report. The Braga player operates mainly on the right, as a forward, but has played in midfield in the past with some regularity.

The Catalans have officially signed him already, but he won’t arrive until the end of this season.

His passing and dribbling skills could allow him to play in midfield for Barcelona, where Lionel Messi already occupies the right-wing role. He is seen as a signing for the first team and not a player to be loaned after he officially joins.

The Portuguese U21 international is on a hot streak right now, scoring four goals and providing one assist in his last five matches.
