Manchester City are willing to part ways with Ferran Torres, on whom Barcelona have shown some serious interest this past week.
According to reports, the Cityzens are on good terms with the Catalan club for the Torres deal and it will go ahead as scheduled, only if Pedri switches to the Premier League to don the Sky blue colours.
Pedri has been the latest sensation of La Liga and is on his way to becoming the next big thing in Spanish Football.
The 19-year-old has made a record 73 appearances for both the country and Club in this calendar year. His impressive season earned him the ‘Golden boy’ and the ‘Kopa’ trophy.
The highly-rated youngster has followed the path of his fellow mate Ansu Fati by penning down a 5-year contract with the release clause quoted at a whopping €1 billion.
Barcelona have some tough decisions to make in the upcoming weeks especially with the winter window fast approaching.
Manchester City though have done their groundwork and are well equipped to launch substantial bids to lure either Harry Kane or Erling Haaland to lead the City’s attack.
Ferran’s transfer though is a body blow to the Reigning Premier League Champions as their finishing issues in the final third will only be complicated further.
Manchester City are generally inactive in the winter market but this season could see that trend take a different turn. With KDB showing signs of slowing down due to injuries and Gundogan in his thirties, City are looking at Pedri for their future.
It is highly unlikely that City will get their hands on Pedri, given that Barcelona are banking on him, Ansu Fati, and likely, Ousmane Dembele to be the future of their team.
