Adama Traore picks Spain over Mali, open to Real Madrid move

Wolves winger Adama Traore is open to a move to Real Madrid despite his past links with Barcelona. 

The 23-year-old has been in excellent form for the Premier League side, attracting attention from a number of clubs both in England and abroad. 

He grew up at the famous Barcelona's La Masia academy before his move to England, but he would be open to joining their bitter rivals if they came calling. 

"I don't have resentment towards Barca, only good memories, but if Real Madrid called me I would think about that offer, in the same way, I would if it was a Barca one,” he told Cadena SER.

"I was there [at Barcelona] for 10 years and I have great memories.

"There were some problems with the club, some misunderstandings, so I decided to leave to grow as a player.

“I took that decision but I prefer not to talk about the story I had with the club, it was a decision I took in that moment and I don't regret it.”

The winger also revealed that he had picked Spain over Mali at the international level. 

"I will always be grateful to Robert Moreno, who included me in the squad,” he added.

“All Spanish players want to play for the national team.

“I spoke to Mali and they understand; I've never lived there and I never said I was going there, my intention was always to play with Spain.”

Traore will be in action for Wolves against Liverpool on Thursday night.
