Tottenham have dodged a bullet as Barcelona make first bad decision of the transfer window

Posted by

Things had been going reasonably well for Barcelona during the current transfer window.

Despite being over a billion euros in debt, some financial wizardry allowed the club to sign Ferran Torres and register Dani Alves, as well as promoting a number of young Barca B players into the first-team.

Joan Laporta and his board were, and are, well on the way to lifting the club out of the huge mess that they found themselves in after the horrendous mismanagement of the previous regime.

There hadn’t really been a bad decision made by the current board… until now.

Barca’s apparent loan deal for former player, Adama Traore, as reported by The Guardian, is a strange one indeed, and means that Tottenham have certainly dodged a bullet in this window.

The oiled-up, rapid wide men has pace to burn and that’s really about it.

Adama Traore

His scoring and assist stats are abysmal for a Premier League player, and although he was much younger when he left Barcelona, Traore managed only four first-team appearances before being sold.

What seems to be a need to get the band back together, and recreate the Guardiola years, or as near as possible to them, is surely going to hinder more than help Xavi Hernandez.

The other thing to consider of course is that do Barca even need Traore?

Registering Alves as a right-wing back has covered all bases down that channel until the end of the campaign, so a loan for the same period for Traore doesn’t appear to make too much sense.

  1. I also see no reason in a traore loan deal, they have enough wingers, even without dembele, and (temporarily) ansu fati.

  2. Totally agree this guy is just a runner. His football skills are nothing. He would have being no better than any player we already had. That doesn’t mean the Kevy is not capable if running a football club at this level. His miserable methods are laughable and it means Spurs will never be anything.

  3. You are not making sense at all, are you insinuating that Dembele’s wing ain’t a priority? Let us make the mistake, it’s good for us until you see him explode for us, He has pace, strength & no one has that in Barca

  4. This guy is what barca needs,at least for now.He has the strength,pace and skills to run at every ends and fortunately for us,we we be less bullied at opponents’ final thirds.

  5. Actually it is a good decision. dembele is practically out of the squad, fati is inured traore is a good cover with some low wages and there is no obligation to buy.

    What are you people talking about?

  6. Adama treore is vary vary inportance sirning for barcelona at this time becouse we are introble now.

  7. Doesn’t matter. the main problem is Levy thinking the clubs money is his OWN! Millionaire but i bet he still uses Vouchers at the supermarket!

    If only he backed Poch when requested, Tottenham might’ve won something.
