Manchester City have reportedly intensified the negotiation process of Ferran Torres as Barcelona’s officials have confirmed their presence at the Etihad.
The Catalan club are in midst of a financial crisis and the only way to overwhelm that is by selling a few players and reportedly seven are being considered, The Mirror understands.
The list includes the likes of Sergino Dest, Sergi Roberto, Clement Lenglet, Oscar Mingueza, Philippe Coutinho, Neto, and Samuel Umtiti.
Manchester City have quoted Ferran at €70M and negotiations are underway with the Blaugrana to complete the day.
Torres was in quite some form scoring twice and assisting once in his four appearances before he sustained an injury at the UEFA Nations League, ruling him out of action for three months.
The new Catalan Boss, Xavi Hernandez seems to be an admirer of his countryman who is versatile enough to switch positions in the attacking third based on the situation.
Manchester City though have held firm on their price tag and are interested in swap deals only if Superstars like Frenkie De Jong, Pedri Gonzalez are in the reckoning.
The Cityzens would be gutted to know the fact that losing Ferran would mean their number nine woes will only augment as they pursue their hunt for an Aguero-isque striker in the form of Erling Haaland and Harry Kane.
The Spanish forward was believed to make the striker position his own especially under the vision of Pep Guardiola and was a long way from the transfer rumors until the prospect of leading the Barca attack lured him.
Ferran Torres would be playing alongside the likes of Ansh Fati and Ousmane Dembele in the front third if at all the deal is finalized.
Will the trio replicate the Messi-Suarez-Neymar legacy at the Camp nou ?
let us know.
