Barcelona have kickstarted their preparations for the new season today, with Xavi summoning a host of first-team players to training.

One of the players reportedly involved in the training today is Francisco Trincao. Although the forward is widely expected to leave Camp Nou, he was called up by Xavi to training, which confirms Wolverhampton Wanderers’ desire not to make his loan move permanent.

Trincao spent the 2021/22 campaign on loan at Molineux. He joined Wolves in order to make his presence felt in professional football following a rather disappointing start to his career at Camp Nou.

However, the attacker failed to make a telling impression, scoring just twice in 28 league appearances. It has compelled Wolves not to opt for the option to secure his services on a permanent deal.

According to BBC Sport, Wolves must pay an agreed €6 million for retaining Trincao’s services permanently. However, there is a special clause that will enable them to earn 20% of the attacker’s future sale from Barcelona.

It is no secret the Catalans are actively looking for suitors for Trincao, who is still rated highly despite his struggles at Camp Nou and Molineux over the past couple of years.

It has been reported that Sporting CP are weighing up a move for the former SC Braga starlet. It appears the Portuguese giants want to sign him on loan initially, but the contract could include an option to buy clause worth around €18 million.

Such a scenario could see Wolves earn up to €3 million, though they are unlikely to earn the amount immediately unless Barcelona find a way to offload the attacker permanently in this ongoing summer transfer window.
