Ferran Torres has completed his transfer from Manchester City to FC Barcelona in a deal for up to 65 million euros.
At the Camp Nou, the Spain international has agreed to a five-and-a-half-year contract.
The club’s new head coach wanted to bolster the attack with a goal-scoring player, and they’ve found him.
Despite the club’s financial woes, the transfer was a priority for Barcelona, and the club will be pleased to have completed it before the window officially opens, allowing Ferran to begin practicing with his new teammates as soon as possible.
It was made possible, in part, by additional bank financing and Sergio Aguero’s departure.
Ferran Torres, 21, had a contract with Manchester City until 2025, and since joining from Valencia in the summer of 2020, he has scored 16 goals in 43 games for the team.
He made his Spain debut shortly after moving to England, and he already has 12 goals in 22 outings for La Roja.
