It’s official… Ferran Torres is headed to Manchester City.
The team has completed the signing of the 20-year-old Spanish professional footballerfrom Valencia CF, the club has announced.
Torres will move to the Etihad for a fee of €23 million plus add-ons, according to ESPN.
Torres, who has been capped six times with Spain’s Under-21 team, is Pep Guardiola‘s first signing of the summer.
Valencia were resigned to losing Torres, who had just one year left on his contract. He made 97 appearances for the La Liga side and scored nine goals.
He was made a prime target for Guardiola and director of football Txiki Begiristain following the sale of Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich.
“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.”
“Pep encourages a really open, aggressive style, which I love, and he is a manager with a proven track record of improving players. To have him overseeing my development is a dream.
“City have won plenty of trophies in the last 10 years and I hope I can play a role in continuing that success.”
