Ferran Torres close to joining Barcelona from Manchester City in £50m plus deal

Ferran Torres is close to joining Barcelona from Manchester City in a deal that could be worth more than 50 million pounds (60 million euros).

the athlete He understands that the two clubs are working to reach an agreement on an initial fee of around £46m (€55m) which could rise due to future additions.

Torres, 21, only moved to the Etihad Stadium in the summer of 2020 and has missed the past three months with a foot injury, but has already been frustrated with his chances of playing.

Barcelona have informed the Spain international that he will be an essential part of the rebuilding process under new coach Xavi, and are said to be excited about the possibility.

Barcelona’s initial approach to Torres, towards the end of November, left City confused as they anticipated attempts to sign Raheem Sterling, who had previously been the focus of the Catalan club’s attention.

But they turned their attention to Torres and were nearing completion after City announced that they would accommodate a sale as long as the player wanted it and Barcelona made a suitable offer.
