A delegation from FC Barcelona is said to have flown to England on Saturday to meet Manchester City and thus offer the recruitment of Ferran Torres to Xavi.
With the return of Joan Laporta to the presidency, the course taken by FC Barcelona was quickly set. More young people, more talent, if possible coming from the training center or coming from Spanish football if necessary. Ronald Koeman started this project, but was recently forced to give way to Xavi, which should continue its momentum during the winter transfer window. A name has indeed come up over the past few days: that of Ferran Torres. The latter would also be more than happy to leave Manchester City to join the Barça, with Pep Guardiola ready to let him go.
It starts badly for Ferran Torres
Several media in Catalonia announced this Saturday that emissaries from FC Barcelona would have left for England, to meet Manchester City and therefore open negotiations around Ferran Torres . Things would not have really started off on the right foot, since La Cuatro reveals that the first meeting between executive director Mateu Alemany and the Citizens, would have ended in failure. According to information from the Spanish channel, this would be linked in particular to the amount claimed by City, which would like to recover no less than 50M € from the departure of Torres, that is to say the double of its purchase price in 2020.
