According to @gerardromero, Barcelona are negotiating with Manchester City for Ferran Torres.
@sport adds that Mateu Alemany is in Manchester to find to a solution to reinforce Barça’s attack. The arrival of Sterling is very tough. Therefore, they are looking at options like Ferran Torres and Bernardo Silva.
Barcelona like Ferran Torres a lot but his transfer is very difficult to carry out due to the current situation.
Torres has a contract until 2025 and Manchester City are likely to demand much more than the €24m they paid to Valencia.
@ffpolo [md] adds that Ferran Torres has asked Guardiola to leave for Barcelona. Moreover, the Valencian striker wants to join Barça at all costs.
Pep has agreed to let him leave if there is an economic agreement between the clubs.
Along with Mateu Alemany, CEO Ferran Reverter also travelled to Manchester and they negotiated with Manchester City CEO Ferran Soriano. Barcelona are optimistic because Ferran Torres wants to join Barça now.
looking for attackers
As per many reports, Barcelona want to sign a forward in January. Xavi wants a winger but the sports sector prefers a number 9.
The market is being analysed but there must be exits first. @RogerTorello [md] reported today that Barcelona remain interested in Karim Adeyemi and Dani Olmo. But their arrival in January is almost impossible. They are targets for next summer.
According to @martinezferran [md], Barça are very limited by the financial fair play and Sterling’s salary is very high and thus difficult to fit in the bill.
Meanwhile, the name of River Plate’s 21-year old forward Julián Álvarez is also on Barcelona’s radar. If Barça fail to sign someone experienced like Werner or Sterling, they will target Cabral or Álvarez.
As per @Luis_F_Rojo [marca], Edinson Cavani (34) could be an option for Barcelona. He meets the profile of a scorer Barça are looking for.
