Adama Traore officially returns to parent club Wolverhampton Wanderes after his loan deal with Barcelona expired on June 30. The winger came back to the club for a second spell in the January transfer window on a short-term loan that included a purchase option. However, Barcelona decided not to sign Adama permanently. Now he’s back in the Premier League.
Adama came to Barcelona during a tricky time. He made it clear it was a dream for him to be back at the club where he began his career. “I have been away for seven years, I will do all I can to make the Barça fans happy with me. I am happy to be back home and I hope to demonstrate my talents on Sunday,” he said during his presentation. “I’m really happy, excited and ready to help the in every way. Going back to Camp Nou will be very special; I am coming back home.”
A Short Term Solution
Adama made a bright start to life back at the Camp Nou, notching four assists in his first five games back for Xavi’s side. However, that was about as good as it got for the forward. He didn’t pick up any more assists and struggled for game time in the last months of the season.
Adama could be on the move again this summer as he only has a year left on his contract at Molineux.
As Barca fans should applaude him for the effort he made in order to join our club in difficult times. We all knew that he’s probably not a world class player that would be part of the squad in the long term. But he did give up a lot of money to join, and overall he did well. Not enough to trigger the 30m Euros buy option, but he did well.
