Manchester City forward Ferran Torres will undergo a medical for his Barcelona football transfer, worth €55 million (£46m/$62m), very soon.
Reports last week confirmed that Manchester City had reached an agreement with Barcelona over a permanent move for Ferran Torres.
Barca documented record-breaking debts when the last financial year ended, offloading players in the summer to lower their wage bill.
Club legends and veterans departed, as a result, while the club had to scour the free-agent market to sign reinforcements.
The club are still exceeding La Liga’s salary restrictions at present, but Sergio Aguero’s health-related retirement will reduce those arrears.
Also, Barca managed to stay afloat thanks in part to a half a billion loan from investment bank Goldman Sachs. And it is this borrowed amount that has helped the Catalan club fund the transfer for Ferran Torres. Even so, Torres will be on a reduced salary for the first few months of his Camp Nou career.
Torres’ 16-month stay at Manchester City’s home ground, Etihad Stadium (the football news), is thus drawing to a close.
The Spain international, on his part, is ready and extremely thrilled to pen a long-term contract at Camp Nou. He has decided to return to his homeland, Spain, where he initially began his career at Valencia.

Ferran Torres Will Undergo a Medical for His Barcelona Football Transfer
Before then, as of now, Ferran Torres will complete a medical at the Liga giants’ training ground soon.
All being well, Barca will officially announce him as their player later in the day.
The club has organised the 21-year-old’s first press conference and unveiling to take place at their home ground on Tuesday.
Torres won’t be eligible to play for Barca until the January transfer window opens, though. Still, he may feature when they resume their domestic campaign against Mallorca.
