Manchester City are still keen on signing Ferran Torres from Valencia this summer but the English giants are unwilling to meet Valencia’s demands for the young winger. Spanish journalist Hector Gomez has stated in Gols Media that the Citizens have now offered Valencia Yangel Herrera as part of the deal to lower the overall costs.
It is reported that Man City have offered Valencia the Venezuelan midfielder as part of the deal to lower the transfer fee for Torres. Herrera spent last season on loan at Granada and he impressed for the LaLiga side. The loan deal will be for twelve months and there will be an €18m option to buy next summer.
Herrera was signed by Man City in 2017 in a deal from Atletico Venezuela. He was then sent on loan to New York City FC and later on SD Heusca before joining Granada in 2019. The 22-year-old had an impressive season for the LaLiga club, helping the side to qualify for Europe for the first time in their history.
Valencia are demanding around €50m for Torres in a summer in which the winger could become one of the hottest players on the market. City have reportedly told Valencia they are not willing to go any higher than €35m for Torres. The 20-year-old will be out of contract at Valencia next summer and has told the club he wants to leave to further his career. Manchester United, Real Madrid and Manchester City are considered as leading candidates to sign Torres.
