Manchester City are close to completing signing of Valencia starlet Torres

Manchester City hope to reach an agreement with Valencia over the transfer of Ferran Torres. Both Goal and SPOX report that the 20-year-old winger has already agreed personal terms with the English giants and that it is only a matter of time before the transfer will be announced. City and Valencia are currently discussing the terms which are believed to be between €30 and €40m.

The Spanish club is having a massive sell-out this summer as the club is looking to keep it’s head above the water financially. Despite having a billionaire owner in Peter Lim, Valencia will have to clean out their squad and wage budget to survive the effects of the corona crisis pandemic. Torres is believed to be the first player to leave.

The report from Goal claims that Pep Guardiola has been speaking to Torres and he has played a key part in convincing him to accept the offer from Man City. It is believed that Borussia Dortmund also had interest in Torres, who was considered to be the successor of Jadon Sancho if the winger would complete a move to Manchester United this summer.
