Ecuadorian side Barcelona are still waiting for Wolverhampton Wanderers to pay for the transfer of Leonardo Campana.
Club president Carlos Alfaro Moreno revealed the details of the negotiations in an interview with radio Cobertura Plus FM on Wednesday.
“One of the items to be collected is the training rights of Leonardo Campana, who we have already managed and are in contact with the people of Wolverhampton. It is around US$400k,” he said (via Aficion Central).
When announcing the signing back in January, a statement on Wolves’ website said Campana had just left Barcelona, so it sounds like the Premier League side didn’t have to pay a fee to get the striker. But as we all know, the solidarity mechanism must be covered anyway.
Campana had been with Ecuador’s U-23 team in January, as he was part of the squad which was playing the Pre-Olympic tournament.
He had to leave South America to complete the transfer with Wolves, having missed a crucial game which ended up resulting in their elimination from the tournament.
Despite being with Wolves since then, the striker is still to make his debut for the club, having only staying on the bench in the Europa League clashes against Espanyol.
