Speaking during an exclusive interview with BarçaTimes, journalist Toni Juanmarti has claimed that Barcelona are keen on selling Portuguese winger Francisco Trincao in the summer. Trincao signed for Barcelona from SC Braga in the summer of 2020. Arriving with a great reputation of being one of the most exciting attacking prospects in Portuguese football, the 22-year-old found it difficult to get going at Camp Nou.
Indeed, the young winger was unable to get a regular run of games in Ronald Koeman’s side. When he did play, he was not always able to make the best impression. While he did make 42 appearances in the 2020/21 season, only three of those were starts in La Liga. Last summer saw Trincao being loaned out to Premier League club, Wolves, who also have an option to make the purchase permanent for a fee of £25 million.

Inter Milan are trying to play hardball with Chelsea as the English Premier League side are trying to re-sign one of their former strikers this summer. The Blues are trying so hard to get a deal for the Belgium international striker over the line after seemingly being priced out of a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

One of the reasons for Dortmund’s reluctance to sell Haaland this summer is due to the fact that they’ve already sold Jadon Sancho to Manchester United and they would not want to lose their two best players in the same transfer window – especially not without first getting replacements for them. Although they have ready signed the replacement for Sancho, they still want Haaland to spend at least one more season with them before they can start listening to offers for him from next summer.
