Barcelona confirmed on Sunday that Francisco Trincao has joined Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers on a season-long loan.
Trincao only arrived at the club last summer from Braga but struggled to make much of an impact and will now try his luck in the English top flight.
Here’s Barca’s official statement:
“FC Barcelona and Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club have reached an agreement on the loan of Francisco Trincão until 30 June 2022. The English club will take responsibility for the player’s licence and the deal includes a non-compulsory option to buy.”
It’s not too much of a surprise to see Trincao depart, particularly following the arrival of Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero this summer.
Trincao joins a Wolves team that has appointed former Benfica boss Bruno Lage as their new head coach following the departure of Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Barcelona youngster will become the latest Portuguese player to head to Molineux, joining the likes of Nelson Semedo, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Fabio Silva, Rui Patricio and Pedro Neto.
