I think it was done in panic to deflect from the lack of other activity. But it didn't work, because fans saw straight through it.
Christ, we’re in big trouble if Wolves mgt. are doing multi pound deals in panic .
Also, considering we fans don’t know the details of either of the Traore or Trincao contracts, how could we see through them?

Hear me out with my mad theory.
We swap Traore for Trincao,
Barca then use Traore as a bargaining chip as he is wanted by Leeds for Raphina who is wanted by Barca. We then have a bargaining chip in Trincao who is wanted by Sporting and we want either one or both of their centre midfielders. Mendes gets paid loads and we benefit. It’s better than having Traore leave for 10-15m or nothing in 12 months and loan to buys could be used to offset transfer money etc
That's not a bad idea but knowing our recruitment team they'll allow Barca a 30% sell on fee for Trincao.

After already pandering to fans by signing Hwang earlier than we needed to….
How on gods beautiful green earth, was signing Hwank, ‘pandering to fans’?
Are you drunk?
I don’t know anyone who thought this was anything other than a PR exercise for the Korean market.

We didn't need to do it. We had until this summer to exercise the deal and could have waited.

They pulled the trigger early, to try and appease fans for lack of other activity in January.

Crickey……I hate to think we hired a guy as a pr exercise. That would be pretty stupid.
No one in the PL would do that.

Hopefully they keep him then and also take the Trinc back, as he really is pretty much useless!
I can certainly understand where you´re coming from.
Trincao has been frustrating to watch more or less all season.
I still think there is a really useful footballer hiding there somewhere though.
I think there is potential for some great and rapid progress regarding Trincao...he could very well be a different player next season.
Adama is gone..I wouldn´t mind using him as a tool to get us to keep Trincao.
There is a footballer there...you might wanna shoot me for saying this if Trincao continues to be pretty pants pre WC break..it´s my opinion though and Trinc has allready start to look a lot better given his last performances IMHO.
I´d keep him if possible.

Think I’d rather swap Traore for that Nico Barcelona have than Trincao .

Not that I’ve ever actually seen Nico kick a football!...

Curious if there’s any link between some senior players see a player like Adama go to Barca and the wanting a fresh challenge in the summer/performance levels dropping.

Probably not, and impossible to measure, but throwing it out there.

Besides Trincao there are a couple of players Barcelona may consider swapping for Adama Traore.. Rigui Puig and as you say Nico González

I'd see if Sporting would take Trinaco and the Money they owe us for Vinagre cancelled out for João Palinha.

That way just do an Afobe type deal and everyone is happy.

@Dan G WWFC I agree this could turnout to be a triangle affair of 3 clubs concerned here with lack of funds from Barca & Sporting making it easier for all these deals

I think the club that wouldn't want that is Barca, I don't think they actually want to keep Adama. I think they just wanted him for cover.

Maybe so @Dan G WWFC with Adama yet I can see where your coming from with Sporting CP with Trincao, Vinagre & Joao Palhinha..
It will all become clearer within the next 2 months

You don't get it, Traore doesn't want to be at Wolves he won't sign the contract. So get rid of him.
That's not the whole truth though. Apparently he loved wolves but (1) his agent was hanging out for a top deal when his value was highest and (2) adama got a dream loan move.

Never heard anything about him not enjoying wolves or bad behaviour. Am sure he'd be happy to be back, even if he'd prefer barca, but it depends on contracts and possibly also playing in europe.

I'd have him back in a heartbeat but usually as a supersub and def not as top earner.

I think he'll just wait his contract out now and get a pretty good deal somewhere with a bigger signing on fee.

With only a year to go no point signing a lesser deal than us
