Sporting de Braga's statement revealing the details behind the contract for the Francisco Trincao's transfer to Barcelona reveals that Jorge Mendes could charge up to seven million euros for brokering the operation.

Francisco Trincao's arrival in Barcelona continues to surprise locals and visitors alike. The winger is a promising, but not contrasting, player who still has much to prove in Portuguese football. That's why his millionaire signing for Barça has caught everyone's attention.

In the last hours, new information has appeared in relation to this surprising operation. To begin with, 'Sport' reported this Tuesday that the player already got close to signing for the Catalans in 2018. Trincao shone in a European U19 tournament, which lead to a first approach by Barcelona.

Then, his price tag was 12.5 million euros, but Barcelona only offered between five and six. Then, in 2019, the club tried yet again, but his clause had only increased.

Thus, Barcelona have now paid about 31 million euros, although Trincao will not officially be joining the squad until this summer.

At the same time, Sporting Braga revealed the details and clauses of the operation, which shows there's one clear benefactor: Jorge Mendes. The famous agent will cost Sporting de Braga 1.5 million euros, which could become seven million if a series of bonuses are fulfilled.

Once again, the Portuguese agent was successful in helping to close a deal for a La Liga team.
