Wolves will reportedly receive 20% of any fee Barcelona sell Francisco Trincao for in the future, having negotiated a sell-on clause.
The club have decided not to exercise their option to buy the winger after his loan spell in 2021/22.
Trincao made 30 appearances for the club, but struggled to show consistency at Molineux.
The youngster offered glimpses of his talent but ultimately failed to truly convince.
Yesterday evening, the club tweeted out that Trincao was to return to Barcelona, and thanked him for his contributions.
Now, the Express & Star have made a rather interesting claim about the 22-year-old.
When Wolves brought him to Molineux last year, they negotiated with Barcelona to ensure that they would receive 20% of any future fee for the player.
It means Wolves could be in line for a decent little windfall, with Trincao a player with big potential.
He may not have cut it at Wolves.
But neither did Vitinha, and he went away and flourished and has just completed a big-money move to Paris Saint-Germain.
It remains to be seen if Trincao – whose loan cost Wolves £5.1 million – leaves Barcelona permanently this summer. There have been reports of interest from Sporting CP.
But it would be better for Wolves if Trincao was able to boost his market value throughout 2022/23, before being sold in the summer of 2023.
A surprisingly astute move from Wolves as report reveals 20% Trincao sell-on clause
News of Wolves holding a 20% sell-on clause over Trincao is great to see.
It shows that Wolves have perhaps learned from the Vitinha situation.
Trincao may go down a similar path to the new PSG maestro, and at least Wolves will be able to benefit if that does happen.
And there’s a reasonable chance it will.
Trincao did struggle at times in England, but his talent is undeniable.
He will thrive in a league that is more suited to him, and his market value should shoot up.
