Adama Traore He is now officially a Barcelona player after the Barça club confirmed it. The footballer returns to the culé discipline (he left in 2015) on loan from the Wolverhampton Wanderers until the end of the season. The two clubs reached a full agreement last Thursday and the following day Adama passed the medical examination without problems. Since then, the club has been working to resolve the last fringes and avoid any obstacle in the League, which has been studying how the striker’s arrival affects the salary table of the entity and in the financial fair play. Adama has not hesitated for a moment in accepting Barcelona’s offer and has agreed to significantly reduce his record for the remainder of the seasons so as to be able to fit in with the limits set by the employer’s association.
Adama landed this past Friday from Dubai, where he was spending a few days on vacation taking advantage of the Premier League break.

“I am very happy,” Adama limited himself to responding to the journalists who were waiting for him at the private flight terminal at El Prat airport. The footballer also acknowledged that he had not yet spoken with Xavi Hernandez. This is the third signing received by the Catalan coach after Dani Alves and Ferran Torres. It was significant that after undergoing the pertinent medical examination by the club’s doctors at the Barcelona Hospital, has already left with a shirt of his new team to go to the club offices. It must be remembered that Barcelona had not yet manifested itself, since the operation could not be made official until the League Give the definitive approval so that the end can be registered.
The arrival of Adama definitively closes the doors to Ousmane Dembele, who already knows that he will not have minutes if he decides to stay at the Camp Nou from Monday. Before the delay in the agreement for its renewal, the Catalan club decided to break the rope and put the Frenchman in a situation: or renewal or departure immediate. Events have forced Dembélé’s agents to travel to Barcelona to try to unblock the negotiations, although the economic claims they demand have not changed and are totally unattainable for Barcelona, which already considers the French winger lost.
Adama was trained in the youth categories of the Barça club, where he arrived when he was just eight years old, winning the Youth League. The footballer reached the first team under the tutelage of Nanny Martino but in 2015, after two years without prominence, he went to Aston Villa in an operation that the club considered profitable. They passed him by 10 million plus another two in variables. Following Aston Villa’s relegation, Adama moved to Middlesbrough, where he played until 2018, when he signed for Wolves. The winger was eager to find a way out, as he has not had the expected participation (he has only started ten Premier League games).
Although the agreement contemplates a transfer until the end of the season, the agreement goes further and there is a 30 million purchase option of euros. We must remember that Wolverhampton paid 20 million in 2018 to Middlesbrough. Now, after six seasons in the Premier League, he returns to the League, where he only played one game, against Granada. If no setback arises, Adama could debut again with Barcelona next Sunday, February 6, against Atletico Madrid. The footballer will be presented this Monday and in the afternoon he will join the training sessions with his new teammates.
