ADAMA TRAORE has dropped a summer transfer hint, by admitting that his Barcelona past wouldn't stop him joining Real Madrid.
The 24-year-old's incredible improvement for Wolves this season has seen him linked with some of the world's biggest clubs.
And Molineux chiefs will be bracing themselves for bumper bids for their dangerous winger.
Traore began his career at Barcelona, having grown up in nearby L'Hospitalet de Llobregat.
He was highly-regarded as a youngster coming through at La Masia, and made his first-team debut aged just 17 back in the 2013-14 season.
His Nou Camp career rather fizzled out, however, and he has had to take an unusual route to stardom, via Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and now Wolves.
As a a Catalan boy, some may wonder if Traore's Barcelona allegiance could scupper a possible mooted move to Real Madrid.
But when asked about it by La Vanguardia, he said: "It wouldn't be a problem for me.
"I don't close the door to anything. Right now I am very happy here, the operation of the team is fantastic.
"But both Madrid and Barca will arrive when they have to arrive."
But when deciding my future I have no problem going to Madrid. It will be based on the decisions I make with my family.
Traore has been in sensational form this season, scoring five goals and laying on ten assists for Nuno Espirito Santo's side.
These included strikes against Tottenham and Manchester City – and the skilful speedster has launched himself back onto the radar of top clubs.
On his Barcelona links, he continued: "I have no resentment for what happened.
"It would not make sense. Certain decisions of certain people do not mean that I have a problem with the club.
"But when deciding my future I have no problem going to Madrid. It will be based on the decisions I make with my family."
And on his Barcelona exit, Traore certainly has no regrets: "It was a decision of mine which decisions of Barcelona influenced.
"There were certain situations that I did not like, problems with those responsible at the time and I made the decision to leave.
"These are things that I will tell in due course, but for now I keep them for myself."
Traore will have another chance to impress the LaLiga giants, as he takes on their compatriots Espanyol in the Europa League at Molineux this evening.
