Adama Traore moved from Aston Villa to Middlesbrough at the end of the summer transfer window, and the deal is still making news in the Spanish media.

Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo report on Wednesday that Adama’s transfer to Middlesbrough was given the green light by Barcelona, who had to agree to remove clauses they held over the player.

Barcelona put a buyback clause on Adama when he moved to England, and that was removed to allow the Middlesbrough transfer, but it’s not the return clause which is of most interest to Mundo Deportivo.

Barcelona and the Catalan media will hope it doesn’t come back to haunt them, and the player’s recent form is hyped up by the newspaper. However, there’s an awful long way to go before the youngster would be considered a possible Real Madrid target.
