‘The exact profile Xavi needs’: Some Cules suggest ex-Barca player as Sterling alternative
“Imagine Adama Traore as Xavi’s wide right winger 😳,” Barca’s fan account La Masia has tweeted.
Some Cules have actually supported the idea of returning the La Masia product.
“That’s the exact profile he actually needs. Dembele is good but not too sure if he’ll survive this intensity.”
“If used correctly Adama would be insane in this Barca! In the games we are being pressed he can be a threat in the back room. When we are struggling against a well-structured low defence he can cause unbalance and chaos. I am sure Xavi would know how to make the best use of him.”
“I’m sure Xavi can help him on his finishing and final balls with his one-to-one coaching. Traore is up there with Messi for dribbling completed in Europe but he is let down by the final ball.”
Others aren’t convinced by his impact at Wolverhampton.
“We don’t need bodybuilders.”
“Nah, Adama is just a machine without a brain. Even Sterling would be much better for us!”
“To do what exactly?! You love players without any kind of end product just because they were at La Masia at some point, don’t you?! Because that’s the only quality they should have to play at Barca?!”
Indeed, Adama’s problem is that he’s not really prolific despite having outstanding pace and dribbling. The 25-year-old has recorded just 28 goal contributions in 144 appearances for Wolves.
