Francisco Trincão moved to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer window, initially on loan for the current season.

The Premier League club have an option to make the move from Barcelona a permanent one, but they’d probably like to see more from the 21-year-old before deciding whether to take the plunge.

Wednesday morning sees claims come from Catalonia that Barcelona could look to take the youngster back from Wolves, as soon as the January transfer window.

Mundo Deportivo state Xavi Hernandez, the club’s new manager, is the one behind the idea, and he’s studying the possibility of the return happening.

The report comes originally from Record in Portugal, and they say Xavi has asked Barcelona to try and negotiate a deal with Wolves which would see the player return to the Camp Nou in the winter market.

Wolves have every power to simply reject any approach, and given Barcelona’s difficult finances, and pressing need for a striker, it’s unclear how they’d go about convincing the English club.
