Ferran Torres joins Manchester City on five-year contract

Manchester City have signed winger Ferran Torres from Valencia on a five-year contract.

The Spain U21 international becomes Pep Guardiola’s first summer signing, joining for an initial £ 20.8million plus bonuses.

City moved to Torres after Leroy Sane moved to Bayern Munich last month.

The 20-year-old has passed through the famous academy of Valencia and scored four times in 34 appearances last season as he finished ninth in La Liga.

He is considered one of Spain’s brightest young prospects, but Valencia needed to sell some players to balance their books, even before the financial impact of the coronavirus.

Torres told the Man City club website: “I am so happy to join City. Every player wants to be involved in attacking teams and Manchester City are one of the most attacking in world football.

“Pep (Guardiola) encourages a very open and aggressive style, which I love, and he is a coach who has a proven track record of improving players. Having him supervise my development is a dream.

“City have won many trophies over the past 10 years and I hope I can play a role in continuing that success. ”

Torres made his debut as a teenager in the 2017-18 season, before making 13 total appearances this quarter. The following season he scored three times in 37 games in all competitions as Valencia won the Copa del Rey.

City are also looking for center-backs this summer and last week a £ 41million offer for Nathan Ake was accepted by Bournemouth.

Sky Sports Insight: What positions are Manchester City targeting?

Man City are expected to be busy as they seek to regain their Premier League supremacy from Liverpool.

The focus around recruiting will be in defense and, in particular, the signing of two center-backs following their costly shortages last season while a new left-back will also be sought.

Two other very difficult challenges await you: finding a successor to Sergio Aguero and the search for a new number 10 to replace Premier League legend David Silva.
