Ferran Torres has joined FC Barcelona from Manchester City for a fee of around €55 million plus €10 million in add-ons, as confirmed by both clubs today.
The Spaniard has joined the La Liga giants on a five-year contract, with Ferran Torres staying at Barça until at least 2027.
Manchester City had signed Torres from Valencia, for an initial fee of £20.8 million plus bonuses in the summer of 2020. The eventual €65 million Manchester City make on this deal signals a significant profit on their initial investment.
It has also been revealed that Ferran Torres will now have a €1 billion release clause embedded in his FC Barcelona contract.
Originally signed as a left-winger, Torres took the recently vacated number 21 shirt upon his arrival in the Premier League – an iconic number previously donned for over a decade by club legend, David Silva.
