Wolves reportedly could sign Trincao on a permanent deal once his loan spell ends after the 2021/22 season, as he is likely to leave Barcelona.
The Lowdown: Trincao confirmed
As per Wolves’ official website, the Portugal international has signed on a season-long loan from the Catalan club, with an option to buy at the end of that arrangement.
Should Wolves have signed Trincao?
He becomes Bruno Lage’s second signing of the summer transfer window so far and will now join up with the rest of his new teammates ahead of pre-season.
The Latest: Permanent deal?
According to Sport, Trincao is ‘more than likely’ to leave Barca once his loan spell at Molineux ends, and Wolves can sign him on a permanent deal for €29m (£24.9m) if they choose to take up the option.
The winger was ‘always open’ to a move away from the La Liga giants in order to get more minutes on the pitch, and if his loan spell is successful, he could well move to the Black Country permanently.
The Verdict: Sign
Unless he has an unsuccessful first season in English football, Wolves should really be looking to sign Trincao on a permanent basis.
The club’s technical director Scott Sellars clearly sees a lot of potential him, branding him an ‘exciting’ player who ‘drives with the ball well’ and has ‘good creativity’, and claims that Lage ‘speaks very highly of him’ (wolves.co.uk).
Trincao should have no problems fitting in with his new teammates either, given that a lot of them are also from Portugal and have played with him in the senior international team.
At just 21 years of age, he is a player with the world at his feet, and Wolves could benefit a lot by signing him permanently.
