Report: Details emerge over Adama Traore's Aston Villa contract, Barcelona's intentions clear

FC Barcelona

Barcelona allegedly don't have a buy-back clause in Adama Traore's contract.

According to the Daily Mirror, Barcelona don't have a buy-back clause inserted in to Aston Villa winger Adama Traore's contract.

Traore, 19, was born in Barcelona and joined the Catalan giants at the age of just eight, making his way up through the La Masia academy to Barcelona's B side.

The teenage wide man did make four appearances for the Barcelona first team, but Luis Enrique's men allowed him to leave the club over the summer, joining Premier League side Aston Villa for a fee of £7m, as noted by the Daily Mirror.

Many had assumed that Barcelona had a buy-back clause in place, as they have with Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu - another La Masia product sold by Barcelona over the summer.

However, The Mirror claim that Barcelona aren't interested in bringing Traore back to the Camp Nou, and have no buy-back clause in place to re-sign the youngster.

It's stated that Barcelona felt the £7m fee was too good to negotiate over, but they do have a first refusal option clause in place, so there remains a very slim chance that he does return to Catalunya at some stage in his career.

So far, Traore has struggled to show that he's good enough for Aston Villa never mind Barcelona, and it's abundantly clear that he is incredibly raw.

He does have plenty of pace and loves to run at defenders, so with time and the right development, he could yet become a Premier League star - but he still has a long way to go if he is to fulfil the potential he showed at Barcelona's La Masia academy.
