Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore has admitted he would consider a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
The 23-year-old has been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, with reports in Spain suggesting Zinedine Zidane’s side could make a move for Traore in the summer.
Traore is enjoying a fine campaign at Molineux this season, netting four goals and assisting the same amount in 19 Premier League matches.
He played a key role in the stunning comeback win against Manchester City on Friday, scoring Wolves’ first and setting up the second in a 3-2 defeat of Pep Guardiola’s side.
Traore, a graduate of Barcelona’s La Masia youth academy before moving to Aston Villa in 2015, seemed to rule out a move back to Catalonia.
But he certainly left the option of a move to Real open.
“If I do not have the option of Barca and I have to go to Real Madrid, I do not close any doors,” he is quoted as saying in an interview with Spanish television station La Sexta.
“There was a misunderstanding with Barca.
“Something happened that I didn’t like, but I prefer to keep it for myself.”
Before Traore countenances any move back to his homeland, he wants to achieve his goal in English football first.
“Yes, why not (return to Spain),” he added.
“But I made a promise to become one of the best in England.”
