The SC Braga star (20), has three goals and two assists in the Portuguese league this season. He plays mostly as a right forward, and is said to possess strong passing and dribbling abilities.

The interest of City in Trincão suggests that the club are already planning for the likely exit of Sergio Aguero in 2021; as well as the possible sale of Gabriel Jesus, who has been linked with a move elsewhere in recent weeks.
