Barcelona are keen to sign Man city Ferran Torres or swap deal with Ousmane Dembele

With just over a month before the January transfer window, Barcelona is already active in the transfer market. After all the conversations they wanted to sign Raheem Sterling, Danny Olmo, Kingsley Koman and various other forwards, it seemed that the Catalans were chasing Ferran Torres of Manchester City.

 In fact, Diario AS reported that the Catalans have been looking at the former Valencia ace for some time and have been stealthily stealing him from the Premier League champions.

It is said that Barcelona has been secretly saving money to sign a superstar to lead new projects under the leadership of its recently appointed manager Xavi Hernandez. Moreover, Torres was selected as the vanguard of the new era at the Nou Camp. The 21-year-old player has become the club’s top priority and no plan B has been developed.

 In fact, Barcelona’s sports director Matteu Alemani is already in Manchester to finalize a deal for the Spanish international who is currently out of the game due to a broken foot. Since joining Guardiola's team last summer, Torres has performed admirably in the Premier League club, scoring 16 goals and providing 4 assists in 43 games.

Despite his impressive exhibition, Torres had to share game time with other Etihad forwards. However, former Valencia attackers reportedly believe he is ready to take over the hero's cloak in a large club and are keen to switch to Camp Nou.

 Mundo Deportivo (h / t AS) indicates that Guardiola has already allowed Torres to move to Barca if the club reaches an agreement. The idea is to try to push the deal across the line in January itself. But if that is not possible, the Catalans will land him in the summer.

Manchester City want to buy Torres 50 million euros

 As mentioned earlier, club director Alemani has been in Manchester with CEO Ferran Revert to formulate a conspiracy to bring Torres to the Nou Camp.

 According to the "Sport" report, Barcelona has reached a complete agreement in principle with the players on the transfer. However, they need to reach an agreement with his club in order to reach a deal.

 The Premier League champions require at least 50 million euros to serve the 22-time Spanish international because they value him very much. Given the financial situation of Barcelona, ​​making this payment in one lump sum may be tricky.

The report further adds that Alemany recognizes that by signing Torres, many boxes of Xavi and the club, the managers of the first team, will be checked. With a proven pedigree on the LaLiga and international arena, you can play wide or middle and young people have what they need to succeed in Catalonia.

 As a result, they are currently devising plans to reach arrangements that will satisfy all involved.

 Barcelona offers a deal with Ousmane Dembele, Manchester refuses.

Therefore, to create the arrangement, Cat Radio reports that Barcelona has decided to offer Ousmane Dembele as part of its contract with Torres. However, their attempt seems to have been shot down by Manchester City.

 Dembele is the final year of the contract and discussions on renewals are not proceeding as planned by the club. The 24-year-old has repeatedly recognized that he is highly regarded by his current coach staff, but the temptation of a big deal from the Premier League has prevented him from signing his extension.

In this situation, Barça risk losing him to nothing at the end of the season. And as a result, they tried to use him as an appendage in the signing of Torres from the Champions of England in order to lower the transfer fees. But given his injuries, Manchester City are wary of such a deal and have declined the offer.

 Thus, it looks like the British giants will firmly support the valuation of their valuable asset at 50 million euros. Now the question is whether Barcelona have the financial means to meet this figure and bring Torres to the club.
