MANCHESTER CITY HAVE agreed a €55million fee with Barcelona for the sale of Ferran Torres, the PA news agency understands.

The 21-year-old Spain forward is now set to move to the Camp Nou when the transfer window formally opens in January.

The deal, which is subject to the agreement of personal terms, could also be worth a further €10million to City in add-ons.

With €7million of that contained in clauses likely to be activated, the Premier League champions feel the transfer represents good business for a player they signed for €25million last year.

City were not looking to sell, and nor is Torres thought to be unhappy at the Etihad Stadium, but he became keen on the move after learning of the Catalan giants’ interest.

Torres has scored 16 goals – including a hat-trick at Newcastle United last season – in 43 appearances in all competitions for City since joining from Valencia in the summer of 2020.
