Barcelona transfer news: Leicester bid for Trincao, Braithwaite to return to PL, Roberto staying put

:Headline: Barcelona transfer news: Leicester bid for Trincao, Braithwaite to return to PL, Roberto staying put:
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Barcelona on Wednesday, August 5.

Having surrendered the La Liga title to Real Madrid, Barcelona are under pressure to make significant changes to their first-team squad during the off-season.

However, given the financial restraints at Camp Nou, putting together an effective transfer strategy is far harder than it has been in the past.

Aside from the club's big-hitters, it leaves the majority of the senior players open to offers, even at a time when the Catalan giants are attempting to win a sixth Champions League trophy.

Wednesday morning's Barcelona transfer talk news roundup:


Leicester City looking to sign Barcelona youngster Francisco Trincao?

Back in January, Barcelona announced that they had won the race to sign highly-regarded youngster Francisco Trincao from Braga.

While the prospect was allowed to complete the season in Portugal, there has been every expectation that the 20-year-old will be part of Barca's squad for the upcoming campaign.

However, according to The Guardian, Leicester City have indicated that they want to hand the Spanish outfit an opportunity to make a quick profit.

The Foxes are allegedly prepared to spend £45m on the winger, providing that they can initially sign him on a two-year loan deal.

That puts club officials in a position where they can generate a profit of £18m without Trincao having made an appearance for the club.


West Ham United in advanced talks for Barcelona's Martin Braithwaite?

One of the more surprising deals during the January transfer window was former Middlesbrough attacker Martin Braithwaite moving to Camp Nou.

A transfer materialised due to Barcelona requiring a short-term replacement for injured duo Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez.

However, according to reports in Spain, club officials are now happy to part ways with the 29-year-old in the coming weeks.

Despite contributing just one goal from 11 appearances, it is suggested that West Ham United may be willing to shell out £18m on the player's signature.

Braithwaite still has four years remaining on his contract.


Sergi Roberto agent denies Manchester City interest

While rarely being regarded as a first-team regular at Camp Nou, Sergi Roberto remains a key part of the Barcelona squad, partly due to his versatility.

The academy graduate, now 28 years of age, has gone on to make 190 starts and 81 substitute appearances for his boyhood club.

Although there has been talk of a potential switch to Manchester City, agent Josep Maria Orobitg has dismissed suggestions of a transfer away from the La Liga runners-up.

The speculation comes at a time when the Spaniard has just two years remaining on his deal.
