‘Fundamentally Haaland Fund’, ‘Benefits all parties’ – Many Man City fans react to Ferran Torres’ completed transfer to Barcelona


The Spaniard today finalized a € 65million transfer to FC Barcelona, ​​making it the second-highest sale in Manchester City history.

Torres signed for the Valencia Blues in 2020, costing the club around £ 20.8million. The reported fees that the city received signal a significant profit on their initial investment.

Originally signed as a left winger, Torres took on the recently released number 21 shirt upon his arrival in the Premier League – an iconic number previously worn for more than a decade by club legend David Silva.

After it took a while to settle into the squad, Torres began to find form as a striker. One area of ​​the City pitch was seriously lacking in reliable options.

Pep Guardiola has trusted the 21-year-old to lead the club’s Champions League group stage in 2020/21. Torres kindly repaid his manager, scoring four goals and becoming a vital member of the squad.

At the start of this season, Torres had the opportunity to lead the line for Manchester City’s first Premier League games – scoring a brace in a 5-0 Arsenal demolition.

However, a foot injury sustained on international service with Spain in October halted Torres’ progress and he has since spoken with Barcelona, ​​who convinced him to join the club’s rebuilding – led by manager Xavi Hernandez.

Many Manchester City fans reacted to the transfer that ended on City Xtra Twitter, with a common theme emerging regarding a certain Borussia Dortmund forward target.
