He left almost seven years ago and now he would return on loan. Adama Traore, a product of the Barça academy that has passed through various English clubs (Aston Villa, Middlebrough and Wolverhampton), would return to the Camp Nou. Waiting for Barça to make it official, it would be the third winter signing to regenerate the team xavi, in need of stimuli, especially in the offensive part taking into account the serious injury of Ansu Fati (he will be on leave for at least two months) and the conflict, not yet resolved, with Dembele.
With just turned 26 (he celebrated his anniversary last Tuesday), Adama Traore, as reported by the journalist Gerard Romero on his Twitch channel, is on the way back home. It is a prodigy of nature, an old winger, one of those who galloped wildly with the wing (it tends to move better to the right than to the left), who appeared at the Spanish team at the hands of Luis Enrique.
More pressure on Dembélé
Now he would return to Barcelona to give Xavi new resources in attack and generate, at the same time, another element of pressure to force Dembélé out. The French striker was first brought to Ferran Torres and now they place him in his preferred position, that of extreme right, to Adama Traore, player represented by Portuguese agent jorge mendes, who was, precisely, a key figure in Barça’s departures from Semedo Y crack, this one on loan, to Wolverhampton.
It’s just a gesture. My little gesture. My way of thanking everyone who has fought, and continues to fight, against racism. The ones who have inspired me to keep the faith and follow my dreams. I encourage everyone to also have faith and keep chasing your dreams. ✊🏾 pic.twitter.com/0V94ARPF52

there has coincided Adama Traore with both Portuguese players in these first six months of the course, where he has played 23 games and has only scored one goal, the one he signed, precisely, on January 15 in the victory over Southampton. Alves was the first winter incorporation. It came free. Then Barça disbursed 55 million euros plus 11 in variables to Manchester City for Fernando Torres.
Now the figure of Adama emerges, who would come at zero cost, like the Brazilian defender, the striker needed to reinvigorate himself because in four of the last five meetings with the Wolves he has been a substitute, also confirming the precarious economic situation with which Barcelona exhausts the last days of the winter market.
“From what we want to what we can there is a little bit,” he admitted xavi before traveling to Vitoria, aware of the tremendous difficulties that frustrate the plans of Mateu Alemany, the Barça club’s director of football.

And Xavi, who could receive his third reinforcement in the next few hours, still wants new pieces to complete his Barça. Wait for a striker (Morata would be perfect) and a left-back (Tagliafico, from Ajax, is one of his favourites).
