Manchester City have completed the signing of Ferran Torres from Valencia

Manchester City have made their first move in the transfer market for this summer and have completed the signing of promising Valencia winger Ferran Torres.

Torres completed both the medicals and paperwork of the deal in the early hours of Tuesday, 4th of August, and is now confirmed a Manchester City player.

Manchester City sign Ferran Torres

According to Sky Sport’s Fabrizio Romano, the Spain U-21 international who pen to paper on a five-year deal, has now completed the switch to the Etihad for a fee of €27million plus add-ons.

“I am so happy to be joining City,” Torres said. “Every player wants to be involved in attacking teams and Manchester City are one of the most attacking in world football. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BY MAN CITY.

Torres had a release clause of £91 million, but with a year left on his contract, both Valencia and Manchester City have acted swiftly.

While City snap him up at a cut-price fee, Valencia, on the other hand, make a profit from the deal, as he would have been available on a free transfer next season.

The 20-year-old had a breakout season at the Mestalla. He registered six goals and seven assists in 43 appearances across all competitions, according to Whoscored.

After Leroy Sane moved to Bayern Munich earlier in July, Torres is seen as Manchester City’s direct replacement for the new Bayern Munich man.

Torres, like Sane, is a creative mastermind gifted with explosive speed.

He is very versatile. His ability to use both feet allows him to comfortably play on both flanks of attack. He can cut in from the left flank and take a shot with his stronger right foot.

Torres is also a skilled dribbler of the ball. He averaged 1.7 dribbles per game in all competitions this season, constantly threatening any opposition’s defence.

More Arrivals Expected

After the CAS ruling guaranteed City’s place in next year’s Champions League competition, Pep Guardiola has begun splashing the cash.

Guardiola has been on the lookout to fix his defensive susceptibility, with Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly constantly on the Citizens radar.

A deal is already in place to snap up Bournemouth’s defender Nathan Ake, after a £41million fee was agreed upon by both clubs last month.

Lautaro Martinez and Adama Traore have also been linked with the club, as Pep Guardiola hopes to strengthen his squad for the coming season.
