Barcelona are interested in Ferran Torres, a Spanish midfielder who left Valencia for Manchester City in the summer of 2020. With Torres determined to return to LaLiga Santander, this is a step the Blaugrana will follow, but they need to find a way. to convince Manchester City to sell.
Although Man City have signed Torres for a lower price from Valencia, they know it is very important and will demand around € 70 million.
Barcelona does not have a currency right now and, even if it did, the limitation of using LaLiga would prevent them from paying. Thus, the Catalan club is looking at alternatives.
According to El Nacional, Sergino Dest is Pep Guardiola’s favorite player and Barcelona will agree to sign him. That could see the USMNT player and the money going to Manchester City in exchange for Torres.
It will still be a very difficult deal, to begin with, but the fact that Dani Alves will be coming in in January means Barcelona have another way back right.
On the other hand, Sergi Roberto’s surgery may make Camp Nou executives think twice about pushing this potential trade in the winter market.
