Manchester City eye Real Madrid star as potential Ferran Torres replacement

Manchester City sell Ferran Torres

Manchester City would sign Ferran Torres from Valencia in August of 2020.

Torres proved something of a bit-part player during his first season with the Sky Blues, unsurprising given his age, the fact that it marked his first in the Premier League, and the sheer competition for places at the Etihad, particularly in the attacking third.

However, Madrid have no plans to sell and want to avoid a repeat of the Robinho deal brokered back in 2008.

Vinicius Junior has scored 15 and assisted nine in 27 ties for Real this term.
