Posted on December 1, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. by AC

With the winter transfer window approaching, Xavi would like to recruit Ferran Torres, currently under contract with Manchester City until 2025 … but not at any price!

We could see a little showdown between Pep Guardiola and his former player Xavi, this winter. The new coach of FC Barcelona would indeed like to recruit Ferran Torres, who joined Manchester City in 2020 from FC Valence and who has established himself in recent months as a safe bet in his selection. However, Guardiola does not seem really disposed to facilitate this departure. “We are not going to give gifts. When we want to recruit, just because we are Manchester City, we are asked for a lot more money than any other club, “the Citizens coach explained at a press conference. “So obviously we're not going to let our players go for free. There has to be a negotiation, an agreement between the clubs ”. The Catalan press recently mentioned amounts oscillating between 70 and 80M € for Torres. Too much for a Barça who is going through an unprecedented crisis …

< h2> No more than 40M € for Ferran Torres

This Wednesday, SPORT tells us that in FC Barcelona we would have set limits for this file, announced as the top priority by Xavi. The Catalans should not go beyond the sum of 40M € to recruit Ferran Torres, which was bought for 28M € by Manchester City in August 2020. Note that the Spaniard is not the only Premier League player followed by Barça, since the names of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner have also been released in recent hours.
