After long weeks of negotiations and rumors of all kinds, we should soon have the answer for Ferran Torres. The young Manchester City striker (21) is closely followed by Barcelona who have for several days reached an agreement with the player for his transfer. Therefore, it was necessary to find common ground with Manchester City, the team with which he is linked until 2025 following his transfer from FC Valencia in August 2020. Today, the Spanish press announced a deal to around 50 million euros.

“I know they are negotiating, it’s close”

Luckily, Pep Guardiola, the coach of the Citizens, was present at a press conference before the shock against Leicester expected this Sunday in the Premier League. The journalists on the spot necessarily addressed the case of the Spanish international (22 caps, 12 goals), and the Catalan technician has almost put an end to the suspense: “It is not officially done. I know they are negotiating, c ‘is close, that’s all. When the club announces it, it’s done. We are not a club like other clubs, where when the players want to leave, but the owner says: “Stay”. ‘They want to leave because they feel they will be happier elsewhere, they have to go. I’m happy for him. If Barcelona and Real Madrid want a player, it’s hard to say no. Spain, Barcelona want it, he said he wanted to leave, I told him to leave. I called Txiki, his agent, to make a deal. I heard the deal was done. ” One way to put (almost) an end to the suspense.

to summarize

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has all but ended the suspense over the possible transfer of striker Ferran Torres to Barca this winter. He said the negotiations were close to being concluded.
