Manchester City bagged one of the transfer market’s biggest prizes on Tuesday, officially announcing that they had signed former Valencia CF winger Ferran Torres to a five-year deal.
Torres, who became available on the market after Valencia failed to reach contract terms with him for an extension, is considered one of the continent’s top talents and has a bright future ahead of him at the ripe age of 20.
The Spaniard scored six goals and recorded seven assists across La Liga and Champions League action for Los Che in 2019-20, his first full season playing on the first team. This performance opened the eyes of the biggest clubs all over Europe, many of which then made bids for his signature.
Pep Guardiola’s Man City ended up winning the race after agreeing to personal terms with the young striker and offering a transfer fee of $27 million to Valencia, guaranteeing that the young winger will be a key part of the club’s future.
Torres is known as a technically gifted and quick winger who has both a fantastic set of passing skills as well as a knack for goal.
The new Man City winger is set to begin training soon with his new team for the kickoff of the 2020-21 Premier League season in September.
