Francisco Trincao says he can’t wait to play alongside Lionel Messi after he completes his move to Barcelona in the summer.

The 20-year-old is scheduled to arrive at the Camp Nou on July 1 from Braga in a deal worth €31 million.

Trincao has been talking about his impending move and the chance to play with the GOAT.

“I’m really looking forward to meeting him and being able to play alongside him,” he said.

”When the signing was closed, it was incredible, a dream for me. Abel speaks very well of what awaits me. From the players, from the city, from everything.”

The forward has been in impressive form in 2020 for Braga, winning the league’s player of the month award for January and February and scoring six times since the turn of the year.
