Barcelona has reached an agreement to sign Manchester City striker Ferran Torres for 55 million euros, according to Spanish and English reports on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old Spain international joined City from Valencia for £20m in August 2020.
Torres scored 16 goals in 43 games for the English champions, winning the English Premier League and League Cup, and reaching the Champions League final earlier this year in his only full season in Manchester.
In his second season with the Citizens, the player suffered a setback after suffering a broken foot that kept him out of action since October.
Barcelona is looking to strengthen its offensive line after the Argentine city’s top scorer, Sergio Aguero, was forced to retire due to a heart problem, a few months after joining the Catalan giant.
The problem remains that the club was able to register Torres in light of the financial restrictions imposed by the “La Liga”, which forced him to give up his Argentine star Lionel Messi in favor of French Paris Saint-Germain because of debts.
