Trincao still cannot train due to bureaucratic problems

Six of the nine players who joined Barça on Tuesday, trained this Thursday at the Ciutat Esportiva. Tobido, positive for covid19, Aleñá, confined by direct contact with a positive, and Trincao, due to lack of papers, were missing.

At the same time that the 26 players that Quique Setién took to Lisbon jumped onto the Da Luz stadium pitch to prepare for the Champions League quarter-final match against Bayern, another six were exercising at the Ciutat Esportiva . It had to be nine, but in the end three have fallen from the list. Jean Clair Todibo tested positive for covid19 in the tests that were carried out on Tuesday while Carles Aleñá reported that he had been in direct contact with a positive in recent days. In both cases, it was decided to activate the security protocol and start confinement, although in the case of the Mataró midfielder, the test results were negative.

On the other hand, Francisco Trincao could not exercise with his new team due to bureaucratic problems, as the club officially announced.Thus, the new Pedro and Matheus Fernandes, as well as the loaned Rafinha Alcántara, Juan Miranda, Moussa Wagué and Oriol Busquets, trained in field number 2 of the Ciutat Esportiva. This Friday they are scheduled to exercise again at 09:00, waiting for Trincao to finish solving their papers and join the training sessions.

This group of seven players will start the preseason today apart from the first team. Obviously in some cases a way out will be sought before the return of the first team from the holidays. Players like Wagué, Busquets, Miranda and Rafinha do not count in the sports direction for the next season, while there are doubts about Aleñá and Matheus. Pedri's future is also unclear, so the final decision will depend a lot on his performance in the preseason, and on the offers the club receives for a theoretical loan.The only player who to this day has the full assurance that he will be part of the first team next season is Sporting de Braga winger Trincao, who will join Bosnian striker Miralem Pjanic as the two great reinforcements of the season. in the absence of specifying the operations of Lautaro Martínez and Eric García.

And it is that Barcelona has paid 31 million euros for the Portuguese and considers that it can be an important piece when it comes to providing offensive resources to a team that has several forwards who touch or exceed thirty, including Griezmann, Suárez and Messi.
