Adama Traore has cast doubt on his future at Wolverhampton Wanderers by calling Barcelona ‘home’.
The Spaniard has sparked speculation about a possible return to his former club.
Traore came through the ranks at the Catalan giants before making his move to England in 2015 with Aston Villa.
A stint at Middlesbrough would follow, before Wolves paid his £18 million release clause in 2018.
It’s been an up and down spell at Molineux for Traore.
His first season was uninspiring, and in 2019/20 he was electric.
He struggled for a lot of 2020/21, before coming in clutch in the last few months.
Throughout last term, Traore’s future was the subject of speculation.
And his latest comments will no doubt add fuel to the fire.
He said (Daily Mail): “Barcelona is my home, it is reality.
“I have grown up there, I have been there for 10 years.
“From here on we will have to manage with my agents and see what role Barca wants.”
It’s been reported recently that Wolves and Traore are back in talks about a new contract at Molineux.
Traore exit may be inevitable
Perhaps it won’t be this transfer window.
But it doesn’t feel like Traore will still be at Wolves in years to come.
This is not the first time he has fuelled the fire in terms of speaking about other clubs, specifically Barca.
He spoke about both Barca and Real Madrid back in January 2020 (Daily Mail).
Hopefully when the time comes to sell, Wolves get excellent compensation for a unique player capable of winning games.
