Wolverhampton Wanderers have completed the loan signing of Francisco Trincao.

The Portuguese talent joined the club yesterday morning on a season-long loan from Barcelona.

The 21-year-old is the second addition by Wolves this summer following the capture of Yerson Mosquera a couple of weeks ago.

It is a real coup for Wolves.

Technical director Scott Sellars couldn’t hide his excitement at landing Trincao, while Portugal legend Paulo Futre has previously stated the youngster has the potential to become a Ballon d’Or winner.

Hopefully, Trincao can have a really good season at Molineux.

It didn’t quite work out for him last term.

The competition for places at Barca is tough, and he was unable to start too many games.

 

Interestingly, Spanish publication Sport are already claiming that Trincao is highly unlikely to actually play for the Catalan giants again.

Wolves are said to have an option to buy the player for £25 million.

A potential bargain

Hopefully Trincao is able to impress in 2021/22.

That £25 million buy option is very tantalising indeed.

From Sport’s claim it looks as though Trincao could be there for the taking.

If he can have a productive loan spell and enjoys his time in the Black Country, he’d surely want to turn his move permanent in a year’s time.

If he knew he wouldn’t be playing for Barca again, that may at least make him determined to sparkle.
