Barca striker joins Wolves on loan

Share

Young Portuguese striker Trincao has been sent out on a season-long loan by Spanish giants Barcelona to Wolverhampton Wanderers with an option to buy, the Catalan club confirmed on Sunday.

As per reports, Barca paid 31 million euros to Braga a year ago but Trincao’s campaign was marred by niggling injuries and he appeared only intermittently, starting 10 matches and scoring three goals.

He was a late substitute in both legs of the Uefa Champions League last 16 loss to Paris Saint Germain.

The 21-year-old has six Portuguese caps to his name to date but did not make the Euros squad.

At Wolves, he will link up with compatriot and full-back Nelson Semedo, who joined from Barca a year ago for 30 million euros and has become a regular at Molineux.

Faced by burgeoning debts and locked in negotiations with Lionel Messi, whose expensive contract has expired, Barca have already terminated the contract of Brazilian midfielder Matheus Fernandes, which was due to run until 2025.
