Tottenham hung out for reinforcements already seen The latest news from the Pyrenees reads: Adama Traore is returning to Barcelona! The fast-wing Wolverhampton and Barcelona have reached an agreement, and Wolverhampton will not ask much.
Although the Wolves had a contract with Tottenham worth 20,000,000 pounds, Traore still decided to wait for Barcelona and it seems that he has welcomed the return of his dreams. No matter what happens to Ousmane Dembele, whether he will leave, extend his contract or stay in the stands, it has nothing to do with Adama Traore because Barcelona had another trump card up their sleeve.
And his name is Francisco Trincao. The Portuguese winger left Barcelona for Wolverhampton this summer on a loan with the release clause at a price of 30,000,000 euros. But also the clause that the Wolves have to pay Barcelona 6,000,000 euros if they decide not to buy the Portuguese.
The unofficial boss of Wolverhampton is the famous Superagent Jorge Mendes, who is also an agent of Trincao, Traore, Ansu Fati and was in Barcelona yesterday for negotiations. It is not yet known according to which formula Barcelona will buy Traore, but the Catalan media report that it will be under very good conditions and that Trincao's stay in the Wolves is the key to the whole story.
Adama Traore and Barcelona
Adama Traore grew up in Barcelona where he shone in the junior selections in tandem with Munir El Haddadi. However, he did not get a real chance in the first team and decided to move to England He didn't do well at Aston Villa at first, but then he played great for Middlesbrough, only to explode in the Wolves in the end.
Tottenham has been persistent in the last few days in their intention to hire him, but Traore only wanted him at Barça. He was in Catalonia at the beginning of January for negotiations, when Barça asked him to be patient until the situation with Dembele was resolved.
It is still unresolved, but Barcelona seems to have found a way to register Adama Traore. It will probably be a loan with a buyout option, and the player himself agreed to a drastic reduction in salary by the end of the season in order to return to the club where he grew up.
What a story that would be; Barcelona's child left the club, only to return after a few years. Adama Traore has certainly succeeded in what many dream of
