With departure of Leroy Sane followed by David Silva’s, Manchester City are already linked with multiple youngsters to fill in the void and Valencia’s highly rated starlet Ferran Torres has been the latest to be linked with a move to The Etihad.
Los murcelagos’ are said to have put a £39million price tag on the twenty year old Spaniard.
Ferran Torres netted five times in 33 League appearances in Spanish top-tier for Valencia this campaign and is in the final year of his contract at Mestalla though City are expected to bring him in on his release clause which reportedly is just below the £40m mark. And the fact that he is comfortable on either flanks is something which appeals Guardiola, who is said to have made Ferran his top target in the upcoming window.
Well, you definitely can’t argue to his capabilities, Ferran is one of Spain’s most exciting upcoming talent, who is equally comfortable wide up-top as he is cutting inside complementing his pace with dribbles.
Ferran Torres is Perfect for Pep Guardiola; While loving to drive forward with ball, Torres is also capable to drop deep and participate in build-ups. With Valencia, we have seen him starting out wide on the flank and while measuring the distance with right-back – he starts carrying the ball inside to not only open space on the flans but also explore offensive options through middle. Ferran is aggressive with ball at his feet, loves being the protagonist to each attacking bows. Pep Guardiola could just be the perfect mentor for Ferran and vice-versa.
Recent report in Spain ranks the Blues from Manchester as Ferran’s most likely destination. But City will face competitions from the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Juventus for the Spaniard.
Alongside Torres, Bayer Leverkusen’s Leon Bailey is another of names highly linked with City post Sane exit and Leon is believed to be pals with Raheem Sterling – something cooking, ay?
