Traore, Ronaldo – Skinny Footballers Who Became Buff

With Wolverhampton Wanderers star Adama Traore wowing fans with his tremendous physicality, we take a look at some footballers who piled on the muscle in their careers. Check it out!

The Wolves star has lit up the Premier League in recent weeks, with his explosive physicality catching the eye of many in awe of his raw strength. Although he claims he doesn't do weight training, Traore's transformation from a skinny player is well-documented.

Another player who's body transformation was much talked about is Ronaldo. The Juventus man is often praised for his physical ability at the age of 34.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah wasn't always the chiseled figure you see today– during the fledgling stages of his career, the Egyptian lacked the strength and physical presence, but that is certainly no longer the case.

Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale is another underwent major bodily changes during his final few months at his former club Tottenham Hotspur and the early stages of his time in Spain, and is still regarded as one of the world's fastest footballers when he is fit.

Scroll through the gallery above to see some players who bulked up!

Who do you think is the most impressive player on this list?
