Ferran Torres’ Man City stint
Manchester City would sign Ferran Torres from Valencia last August for a fee believed to be around €23m.
Torres would be something of a fringe player during his first season at Man City, which was not surprising given his age, the fact it was his first season in the Premier League and the sheer competition at the Etihad, especially in the attacking areas.
Despite this, the 21-year-old still featured 36 times for City last term, earning an impressive 13 goals and providing three assists.
Torres also proved his versatility, lining out comfortably on the left and right-wings, whilst also doing a job as a centre-forward when asked by Pep Guardiola.

Torres speaks out
After bedding in nicely in Manchester last campaign, Torres is no doubt eager to get the 2021/22 season underway.
The Sky Blues’ Premier League campaign will get underway on Sunday vs Tottenham.
Ahead of the match, Torres spoke to Spanish outlet Marca. When doing so, the Foios-native would be asked what his goal for 2021/22 was, to which he responded:
“My goal is to continue growing. To have better numbers at an individual level and also collective successes. At a group level we have a great block and I think we can aspire to all the titles we play, like every season.”
He was then asked what aspects of the game he would like to improve this year, to which Torres stated:
“I am very young and I still have a lot of margin. The first year I learned and evolved a lot, both tactically and physically; now I have to keep increasing my number of goals and assists for the good of the team.”
