Manchester City agree deal with Valencia to sign Leroy Sane replacement

Manchester City and Valencia have agreed a deal for the transfer of Ferran Torres, reports Eurosport. It is claimed that the Spanish winger has already agreed personal terms with Pep Guardiola‘s side and that a transfer confirmation could be made after the seasons in both the Premier League and La Liga have ended.

Eurosport claims that talks between the winger’s agent and Manchester City took place on Wednesday and that an agreement over a long-term contract was made. Torres is set to become Man City’s first summer signing and the winger will be considered as the direct replacement of Leroy Sane, who has joined Bayern Munich.

Torres is seen as one of the best young talents in the Spanish La Liga and he has been linked with moves to Real Madrid and FC Barcelona in the past. Valencia were also keen to hold on to their star player, who developed through the club’s own academy. The club’s financial problems are the main reason for Valencia to consider selling the winger.

The 20-year-old winger has a contract until the summer of 2021 and earlier contract talks over an extension weren’t successful. Torres made his first team debut in 2017 for Valencia and has made 93 senior appearances for the club. Also, it has been claimed that Real Madrid have been alerted by the possible transfer and could make a last-minute move for Torres.
