Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore has once again spoken about the possibility of returning to the club he started his professional career at.
The 23-year-old is currently enjoying his best season at Molineux, and has arguably showing himself to be one of the most exciting players in the Premier League to watch.
After a bumpy start to life in the Midlands, Traore has now added an end product to his game which has helped him posts stats of five goals and nine assists in 34 appearances.
The Spaniard – who signed for £18 million from Middlesbrough (BBC Sport) – is coming in for regular praise from fans and pundits and inevitably, there has been some talk about his long-term future.
Recently, the 23-year-old raised eyebrows as he opened the door to a possible return to Spain.
Traore has now given another interview with Cadena SER reiterating that openness to returning.
He said: “Go back to Barça? I have no resentment, I have good memories. But if Madrid calls me I would rethink it anyway.
“Why did I leave Barca? There were misunderstandings with the club and I decided to leave.
“I didn’t go out in the best way, but I don’t regret the decision to leave.”
Traore recently stated that it was intention to first become one of the Premier League’s best players before considering moving on.
He still has a way to go before he achieves that kind of status, but the signs right now are very encouraging.
Barcelona fans react
Interestingly, many Barcelona fans on social media don’t appear all that keen on seeing Traore back at the Nou Camp:

Not needed. We already have Collado, Abel Ruiz , Dembele, Ansu Fati who are younger and cost nothing
