 Barcelona Sets €40 Million Price Tag for Ferran Torres amid Summer Transfer Talks

Conflicting information persists regarding the upcoming summer transfer window and the fate of Ferran Torres, the forward for Barcelona.

 While certain reports indicate that manager Xavi Hernandez plans to retain the 23-year-old player, despite criticism, other sources suggest that Barcelona is actively seeking to sell him during the upcoming transfer window.

According to Gabriel Sans from Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona’s current priority is to sell Ferran Torres during the summer transfer window. 

The club aims to generate revenue and reduce their wage bill by offloading him. As a result, Barcelona is reportedly seeking around €40 million for the sale of the Spanish international.

It’s worth noting that Barcelona acquired Torres from Manchester City in the previous winter transfer window, for a transfer fee of €55 million.

Barcelona still has nearly €40 million of Ferran Torres’ transfer fee left to amortize, and they are aiming to receive a similar amount for his sale during the summer transfer window.

The Barcelona sporting department believes that Torres has not lived up to the expectations set upon his signing. Despite making 45 appearances last season, he started only 18 games, and there are concerns that his role within the team may further diminish in the upcoming season.

As a result, Barcelona is eager to sell Torres and hopes to secure a transfer fee of approximately €40 million for his departure.

During the winter transfer window, Newcastle United reportedly made an offer of approximately €60 million for Ferran Torres, which Barcelona declined at the time. However, it is understood that Newcastle remains interested in signing him, and Barcelona is now actively seeking to complete a sale.

If Torres departs, Barcelona intends to replace him with Yannick Carrasco from Atletico Madrid. The Catalan club believes they can acquire Carrasco for a transfer fee of around €16 million.

Although Carrasco does not possess the versatility of playing across the entire frontline like Torres, he is highly regarded within the club due to his dynamic playing style, experience, and ability to contribute goals.
