His father (Baba  Traoré) and his mother (Fatoumata Traoré) are both Spanish immigrants as their original family root has been traced to Mali. The family of Traoré left Mali for Barcelona for Greener pastures and better opportunity. They are among the few Spanish immigrants who made a name for themselves.

Adama Traoré is the second child of 3 children in his family. While growing up, his parents  couldn't afford to get him the expensive toys he desired but rather he will be given a football due to it cheap nature. While growing up in Barcelona, Spain. It was just something that came too easy for him and he loved Barcelona with ease and has always been looking forward to playing for them someday.

Adama facial expression couldn't contain his joy.  It was during his stay at the academy that Adama Traoré earned his nickname USAIN BOLT.  He was short, but his speed and strength still made him stand out among his mates.

Just because he was too good at a young age, Adama was always used to play against opponent older than him. Adama took his stay in the academy just as a full time job as he would always play for his team in almost all competitive matches.

Adama was of great help to Barcelona B as he helped them win the 2014 UEFA YOUTH LEAGUE. While Adama played Internationally for Spain, his brother Moha decided to represent Mali.  Adama later  caught the attention of Aston Villa in 2015 and they decided to sign him to the club for £7 million, Barcelona also stated in the contract they they might be willing to put a 3 year buy-back in the agreement. He made 11 appearance for Aston Villa that season.

Adama Traoré is said to be worth $12 million. He receives alot and spend his money on cars and houses. He is not one of those football players who lavish their money. Fans and supports have said that he is decent. There is no doubt that Adama Is living a Humble lifestyle.
