Barcelona have finalised a deal with Wolverhampton Wanderers for Adama Traore, with the clubs agreeing on a loan deal that doesn’t include an obligatory purchase clause.
That’s according to Deportes Cuatro, who provide an update on a deal that now appears close to completion.
Reports throughout today have indicated Barcelona are closing in on the signing of their former academy graduate on loan from Wolves.
It was later explained that the two sides had agreed on a loan deal until the end of the season with the plan to negotiate a permanent transfer in the summer.
Cuatro now say otherwise and report that Barcelona have ‘agreed with Wolves’ for Traore to return to the Nou Camp in a loan deal until the end of the season, but that agreement includes a purchase clause.
The purchase option is set at €30m but is ‘non-compulsory’, so Barcelona don’t have to pay it if Adama’s return doesn’t go as planned.
They confirm that Jorge Mendes is behind the deal and that the Portuguese super-agent ‘offered his client’ to Barcelona this month.
Traore is currently on holiday in Dubai as he and Wolves enjoy the Premier League’s winter break but gave the ‘go-ahead’ for the deal, and it will be made official ‘in the next few hours’.
