BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Barcelona signed Portuguese forward Francisco Trincão for next season and Atlético Madrid announced the return of Yannick Carrasco on Friday, the final day of the transfer window in Spain.
Barcelona said it had agreed to pay Portuguese club Braga 31 million euros ($34 million) to acquire the 20-year-old Trincão after the season ends for five years.
Since debuting with Braga in December 2018, Trincão has scored three goals in 29 matches. He has played for Portugal’s youth teams and helped it win the under-19 European Championship in 2018 as its top scorer with five goals.
Barcelona described him as a “talented and quick player with a good left leg” who can play as a winger on either side of the attack.
Atlético will hope to boost its goal production immediately with the return of Carrasco, a Belgium forward who played for the Spanish club from 2015-18 before leaving for China.
