Ferran Torres already played down talks about him leaving Barcelona after losing his starting spot. There were some rumors about Arsenal keen on Torres in the summer and could make a move when the transfer window reopens in January. Yesterday, Torres was asked about the speculation. He laughed off suggestions he could move, and said: “An exit? I have just arrived at Barça!”
The former Man City man faces a real battle for minutes with Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski having arrived. But he is happy with the competition for places.
“It’s a pride that Lewandowski is here. We already know him and we know what kind of player he is” . There have been other signings, we are fighting to make a competitive team, which is what Barca deserves.”
Ferran grabbed an assist and a goal after coming on as a substitute in midweek against Viktoria Plzen. But he may find himself back on the bench against Cadiz on Saturday.
Don’t forget that for Ferran Torres, the last games are like ‘Preseason’, as he was out on injury during the summer. He will have to regain his form. And then he will receive more minutes.
With Ferran Torres it’s never a question of the talent he has. But he lacks form, and hopefully soon enough we’ll see him play a lot better.
Ferran Torres is here to stay for many many years. He will have time to turn the critics into cheers.
