Adama, very close to Barcelona
Adama Traoré is very close to returning to the Camp Nou and becoming the third winter reinforcement for the team from Xavi Hernandez, which requires the incorporation of at least one striker after the long-term injury of Ansu Fati and the situation of Ousmane Dembélé, whom Barcelona wants out of the club immediately if he does not sign his renewal before Monday. Precisely, the presence of the Frenchman greatly hampers the economy of the Catalan club and handcuffs the sports management, which cannot make incorporations due to the high wage bill of the squad. Although Xavi’s preferred option is Alvaro Morata, the arrival of Adama Traoré also satisfies their expectations.
The Catalan club has the incorporation of the striker on track, after a meeting that they have maintained with the footballer in which he has shown his desire to return to Barcelona.
It must be remembered that at the beginning of January there was a meeting to test his incorporation and the footballer, represented by jorge mendes, gave its approval, although for this the record would have to be substantially lowered. Obviously, what is lowered now will be received from next year, since it is a trick to be able to register him respecting the parameters of the League. The operation would be fully on track for the summer, but now it could move forward with a transfer with a mandatory purchase option and the Wolverhampton I would also be for the work of facilitating their departure with an agreed price.
The arrival of Adama solves two problems for Xavi. On the one hand, he strengthens the winger, a position in which he has shown his solvency, but he can also strengthen the side, a demarcation in which Barcelona does not have enough. The agreement between the three parties is practically complete and it is only pending that the operation is accepted by the League. It is not ruled out that Dembélé would have to leave if the limit set by the employer’s association is exceeded. The most plausible option is that if Dembele He leaves immediately, Adama arrives in the next few days on loan, while if the Frenchman ends up staying, the Wolves footballer would sign in June.
