Barcelona and Real Madrid could battle to sign Adama Traore of Wolves

The two La Liga superclubs are keen on signing Barcelona’s former man…

Adama Traore has been a revelation in the Premier League this season. Many knew he was talented but I don’t think anyone quite expected the Wolves man to be playing as he is currently. Having caught the attention of Barcelona already, it seems that their Spanish rivals could also be in the chase for Adama.

Well, this is what the Catalans fear is the case anyway. According to the Daily Mail, Barcelona’s interest in re-signing Adama has “intensified” due to the fear that Real Madrid might try to sign him.

Real Madrid sit top of La Liga, with Barcelona closely followed in second, just three points behind the league-leaders. Having had a miserable time of things in Catalonia, Barcelona have every right to be fearful that Adama will choose to sign for Real Madrid instead of them.

Having spent a few seasons in the Barcelona first team, the young Traore made just one league appearance and failed to get on the score sheet. He was then sent to England where he has had to work his way up from the bottom but boy has he done that.

Adama is undoubtedly a physical player. Just taking a look at his immense bodily stature would tell you that. However, what strikes me most about watching him play is his efficiency with the ball at his feet. He is always confident in one on one situations and he loves to use his speed to get the better of his opposing full-back.

He has an excellent range of crossing on him and this is proven in his assist tally. So far this season, the Spaniard has provided an incredible seven assists while getting on the score sheet himself four times.

He really stole the show when Wolves played Manchester City earlier in the season. He was energetic on the ball and having scored a goal and provided an assist in that match, he caught the attention of many and his form has only continued. He would definitely be an asset to Spanish football if he chooses to return.
