After being sent away by Barcelona due to the lack of playing time and development, Adama Traore has quickly become one of the most sensational players of the season.

His unbelievable body transformation makes him look like a linebacker playing at forward, so he's naturally extremely difficult to defend.

That's why he's reportedly drawing a lot of interest among some of the biggest clubs in the world, including Real Madrid. Thus, he wouldn't have any kind of problem joining Los Blancos despite being a Barcelona product:

"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. 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 at that moment and I don't regret it," the forward told Cadena SER.

Traore is reportedly looking forward to going back to Spain once he leaves Wolverhampton, as he's trying to impress those at home to be considered as a part of the national team's squad.

He was born in Spain but has Malian parents. However, he's represented Spain in some youth squads and dreams with playing for the Reds in the upcoming World Cup:

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

Thus far, Traore has scored 5 goals to go along with 9 assists in 34 caps this season, playing a huge part in Wolverhampton's impressive campaign.
