Manchester City signs Ferran Torres

Manchester City has signed Valencia winger Ferran Torres for £20.87m. The 20-year-old has signed a five-year contract with the team, replacing Germany forward Leroy Sane, who left on 3 July for Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

Torres has expressed happiness to join the team. “Every player wants to be involved in attacking teams and Manchester City is one of the most attacking in world football,” he says.

City’s director of football Txiki Begiristain added: “We have followed Ferran’s progress closely and have been very impressed.

“He is young and still developing, but his technical qualities are exactly what we are looking for in a winger. He is quick, direct, can create space with one movement and is capable of producing match-winning moments.”

Manchester City has also done a £40m bid for Bournemouth centre-back Nathan Ake accepted.
