Manchester City on Tuesday announced their first signing for next season. Ferran Torres, a 20-year-old striker, left Valencia to sign a five-year contract with the team headed by Pep Guardiola. The value of the deal was not disclosed, but, according to English newspapers, City will pay 23 million euros immediately.
Torres joins the current Premier League runner-up with a complicated mission: replacing Leroy Sané, who moved to Bayern Munich. Last season, the striker helped Valencia with six goals and eight assists in 44 games. In fact, the transaction can increase to up to 42 million euros, as long as the player meets this and other goals set out in the contract.
“I am very happy to join City. Every player dreams of playing in offensive teams, and Manchester City is one of the most offensive in the world. Pep encourages an open and aggressive style, which I love, in addition to being a coach who knows how to improve players. It’s a dream to be here “, said the striker, to the club’s official website.
