Man City Have Announced The Signing Of Ferran Torres From Valencia

Manchester City have completed the signing of Ferran Torres from Valencia for a reported €27million initial fee plus bonuses.

The Spanish U21 youngster has penned a five-year contract keeping him at the Etihad stadium until June 2025.

He becomes Pep Guardiola's first summer signing, after they saw their two-seasons European ban overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on July 13, as reported by CloudNine Sports.

The transfer of Torres would be a replacement for Leroy Sane who left the club to join German gaints Bayern Munich.

“I am so happy to be joining City,” Torres told the club's website
“Every player wants to be involved in attacking teams and Manchester City are one of the most attacking in world football.

“Pep encourages a really open, aggressive style, which I love, and he is a manager with a proven track record of improving players. To have him overseeing my development is a dream.

“City have won plenty of trophies in the last 10 years and I hope I can play a role in continuing that success.”

Torres, who is considered as one of Spain's rising star, operates predominantly as a winger, as he made 44 appearances for Valencia across all competitions last season, scoring six goals.

The 20-year-old played for the Valencia academy, before he was promoted to the first-team in November 2017.

At the age of 19 years and 324 days, he became the youngest player to make 50 La Liga appearances for the club.

In 2019, he won his first major trophy, as he made six appearances in Valencia’s successful Copa del Rey campaign.

In total, he made 97 appearances for Valencia, scoring nine goals and providing 12 assists.

He has been capped by Spain at U17, U19 and U21 national teams and tasted success, winning the European U17 Championships in 2017 and the European U19 Championships in 2019, where he was subsequently named Player of the Tournament for his sensational performance.

Pep Guardiola now looks forward to rebuild his squad after loosing the Premier League title to Liverpool this season.

CloudNine Sports had reported last Thursday that the Citizens had their £41million pound bid for defender Nathan Ake accepted by Bournemouth.

The summer transfer window which has been opened on July 27, will run for 10 weeks and close at 11pm on October 5.
