Manchester City has officially announced the signing of Ferran Torres from Valencia.

Ferran Torres is a Manchester City player.

It had been rumored that Pep Guardiola had instructed the City money men to go after the youngster. It appears that the gaffer asked and the gaffer got.

City has apparently paid under 30 million Euros to secure the player.

The club has announced the signing of the 20-year-old Spanish winger on a five-year deal.

The player told the club’s official website:

“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.”

Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: 

“We have followed Ferran’s progress closely and have been very impressed.”

“He is young and still developing, but his technical qualities are exactly what we are looking for in a winger. He is quick, direct, can create space with one movement and is capable of producing match-winning moments.”

“I feel this is the perfect place for him to develop and with Pep in charge he can take his game to the next level.”
