Barça's Sign Ferran Torres

Barça accelerates to close the signing of Ferran Torres. The Manchester City player will thus become the second Barça addition to the winter market, after the return to the club of Dani Alves. 

The signing of the former Valencian player, who has already undergone a medical examination in Barcelona, ​​has a fixed cost of 55 million euros and 10 more in a series of variables, such as being elected Ballon d'Or, winning the Golden Boot or the Barcelona team winning the Champions with more than 70% of participation of the international footballer.

Now, the club has to do what its football director, Mateu Alemany has repeated so many times : let out before entering. Barcelona will pay those 55 million in four installments starting next June.

The Despair Of Cristiano Ronaldo

The salary limit right now conditions the registration of the forward. The forced withdrawal of Kun Agüero due to his heart problems and the fact that the Argentine finally resigned from his second year of contract have already made it easier for Barça to register Dani Alves. The Brazilian will not be able to play the next game, against Mallorca, because the deadline to register new players in Spain opens on January 3. 

In the case of Ferran Torres, the player is in the final stretch of recovering from the fracture in his right foot that he suffered in the semifinals of the last edition of the League of Nations. The deadlines have been lengthened more than originally planned and everything indicates that it may be available to Xavi at the end of January. By then, the club must drop ballast.


Right now, there are five names on the exit ramp. The first is that of Yusuf Demir. Barcelona, ​​finally, has decided not to make the Austrian's purchase option effective, which would be activated as soon as he plays 10 games as a Barcelona player (he has nine), and will end his loan by Rapid Vienna. Several German teams have already shown interest in taking over his services.

Luuk de Jong, who arrived at the Barcelona discipline at the limit of the closing of the summer market, could end up in the ranks of Cádiz, in a three-way operation in which Sevilla also intervenes. Sergiño Dest is also in the showcase, with the intention of taking advantage of the good poster that the American still has. In recent weeks there has been speculation about the return to Ajax as a bargaining chip by Noussair Mazraoui, although Arsenal and Chelsea are also following in his footsteps. Bayern have never hidden their interest in recruiting him.


The main names that Barça would like to place on the market are Philippe Coutinho and Samuel Umtiti. Both are in the range of the highest chips in the workforce and have turned a deaf ear to the proposals to lower their respective salaries. Coutinho is the most expensive signing in the history of the Barcelona entity and his performance has not been, far from it, up to expectations.

Despite this, his poster in the Premier, where he shone for five and a half seasons at Liverpool, is more or less intact. Arsenal is the one that seems best placed to take him, in the form of a loan, but there are other clubs, such as Newcastle, the new rich man in European football, or Everton, who have also taken positions to take over his services. The Brazilian soccer player, of course, is also interested in packing his bags. Right now he is a substitute and that determines, and a lot, his presence in the World Cup in Qatar next year.

The case of Umtiti is also very painful for Barça. During his first campaigns at the Camp Nou, the French center-back became a fundamental piece for the team and his progression caused the then president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, to sign a multi-million dollar renewal.

The defender, in 2018, decided to avoid going under the knife to solve some annoying problems in his left knee and be able to play the World Cup in Russia with the French team. The Gauls won their second world championship there, but the performance of the Barcelona defender was never the same as before.
