Joan Laporta has confirmed Manchester City forward Ferran Torres is a winter transfer window priority. Earlier, we reported the football transfer news that the Catalan club were keen on bringing the Spaniard back to Spain. And now, indeed, Laporta, the Barcelona president, has confirmed Torres as their January target.
La Liga giants Barcelona are hoping their financial struggles of the recent past are now behind them.
The club being in dire straits led to Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann leaving Catalonia. But now, Barca are building plans for the future with club legend Xavi at the helm as their head coach.
Actually, there will not be much money for the Blaugrana to spend over the winter (the football news).
Still, Barcelona themselves are teasing a number of possible additions and Spain international Ferran Torres is certainly one of those.
Barcelona President Has Confirmed Torres as Their January Target
Club president at Camp Nou, Joan Laporta, admits the Spain international is one of “many” targets for the January window.
Laporta told TV3: “He [Torres] is one of the players we have in our sights, but there are many others. You have to wait and see how everything goes.”
He added: “Xavi has asked us to reinforce the squad and we are going to try to do so, but at the moment we do not have a salary margin to do it.
“Therefore, at this moment it is not possible but we must let the sports management work.”
