In the sights of FC Barcelona on the sidelines of the next winter transfer window, Ferran Torres could not come if and only if Barça managed to downsize its workforce upstream.
Under contract until June 2025, having signed at Manchester City in the summer of 2020 from FC Valencia , Ferran Torres could already look elsewhere. Indeed, within the framework of the winter transfer window, the FC Barcelona would be likely to try his luck in the race for the signing of Torres . However, the case would not yet be weighed although the Skyblues winger is excited by the idea of integrating the sporting project of Xavi Hernandez in FC Barcelona according to Goal. Indeed, the financial difficulties which forced Barça to part ways with Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann offseason are still present and would complicate the task of Joan Laporta and the management behind the Ferran Torres case.
An inevitable downsizing for Operation Torres?
At least that’s what Goal has been providing over the past few hours. According to the British media, Manchester City would not be obliged to sell and would claim compensation close to the market value of Ferran Torres , much higher than the 25M € disbursed by City for its transfer in 2020. In order to complete the transfer of Torres or any other file, the FC Barcelona would be forced to downsize its workforce upstream according to Spanish sources contacted by Goal. And the departures of Samuel Umtiti and Philippe Coutinho would be expected backstage. The stage is set.
