Braga president Antonio Salvador has hailed Chelsea and Juventus target Francisco Trincao as one of the best players of his generation and insists the club want him to stay in Portugal.

Trincao, who guided Portugal to the European Under-19 Championship in July last year, has attracted interest from several clubs in Europe, including Chelsea and Juventus.




The 19-year-old has notched up seven appearances for Braga’s B team in the second tier of Portuguese football and is increasingly becoming a bright prospect in his homeland.

Despite potential suitors circling around the youngster in a bid to lure him away, Braga rate the young forward highly and are under no inclination to cash in on him.
 


Salvador, who hailed the youngster as one of the best players of his generation, insists that Braga want Trincao to remain at the club because of his quality and potential.

"Braga want Trincao to stay because of the quality he has and for what he can bring even at 19”, Salvador told Portuguese sports daily O Jogo.

"Trincao is one of the best in his world in his generation."

Trincao, who is a product of the academy at Braga, has a contract that runs until 2023.

It remains to be seen if Braga can stand strong in the face of serious interest in the teenager.
