Barcelona return is "not my decision" | Adama Traore

Wolves winger Adama Traore says he'd be open to a move back to Barcelona after winning his first cap for Spain. 

The speedster impressed off the bench in La Roja's goalless draw with Portugal as he finally made his debut on his third call up by the nation of his birth.

Traore is still eligible to play for Mali but the 24-year-old insists he hasn't spoken with their manager Freddie Kanoute about declaring for the African country.

"I didn't talk to him," Adama told a press conference after last night's match. "I only ever met him when I was a child, he is a big personality in Mali, but I did not talk to him about this issue."

Traore left Barcelona to move to England five years ago and he was also asked about a potential return to the Camp Nou.

"It's not my decision," he said. "I think I could suit Barcelona but my mentality is to work every day to be better.

"I speak regularly to Ansu Fati about everything, more general topics because I was at the club (Barcelona) for many years and so has he. We met in the academy and we know each other well."

Traore was on the fringes of the Blaugranga's first-under under current Spain coach Luis Enrique, who has been impressed by his recent form.

"Adama has been Adama in his purest form," the Spain boss said of the winger's debut "That is what we want him to be, with his ability to beat opponents. He has played a killer pass to Dani Olmo that did not lead to a goal.

"With one player they will not to be able to stop him. They are going to have to use two players."
