Manchester City agree terms with Ferran Torres
Ferran Torres

Manchester City have edged closer to signing Ferran Torres after agreeing personal terms with the winger. However, a deal between City and Valencia is yet to be reached.

Despite Pep Guardiola’s public backing of his current attacking options, City could be in the market for a new wide man after Leroy Sane joined Bayern Munich in July in a €60m move.

The club have since had their Champions League ban over turned, and plan to celebrate with a summer of spending as they attempt to wrestle the Premier League title back from runaway winners Liverpool next season.


Valencia’s Ferran Torres is one of a number of players linked with Manchester City in light of the lifting of their European ban, and according to Eurosport Spain, the club and player have already agreed personal terms.

Manchester City now just need to agree a fee with Valencia, the current deal for Ferran Torres expires in 2021, and with Valencia missing out on European football next season, the club are keen to sell in order to stabilise their current financial situation.

Valencia currently sit ninth in La Liga with two games remaining, and can finish sixth at the very highest if they pick up maximum points from their remaining fixtures and those around them slip up.

Juventus, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid were also interested in Torres, but City are in the driving seat due to the winger’s desire to play for Pep Guardiola – Spanish news outlet AS claim that Torres has fallen ‘in love’ with the Citizens.

Meanwhile, there are reports that young Torres is among a number of high-profile players to be sold by Los Che this summer.

Once an agreement is reached between the two clubs, the deal could be made official in the coming weeks, and Torres could be City’s first signing of the summer.

Despite being just 20 years old, the Spaniard is already closing in on 100 appearances for Valencia.

Torres broke into the senior side as a 17-year-old, and has enjoyed his most prolific season to date, chipping in with six goals and seven assists in all competitions.
