In the Blaugrana team they believed that the former Valencianista youth squad would return to Mestalla, but both the coaching staff and the black and white directives have opted for another option that has been much cheaper.
A new disappointment at FC Barcelona has appeared in the last few hours regarding the long-awaited departure of attacker Ferran Torres. It is no secret to anyone that in the culé painting they are working full steam ahead to make the left winger march a reality. He is a player who does not count at all for Xavi Hernández, and he is blocking other signings that the Egarense coach requested.
He Valencia CF It seemed the most obvious destination for the foiero attacker, and even Rubén Baraja showed interest in obtaining the winger. But in the last hours, a response from the team that landed in the Barça offices, warning that they will not sign Ferran Torres for any reason. A mess that continues to get FC Barcelona into trouble.
Ferran Torres blocks the plan of FC Barcelona
With the non-operation between the culé club and the Valencianista team regarding the left winger, the problems in planning Xavi’s squad remain more latent than ever. The equation is simple, if the Valencian does not go out, they will not be able to sign anyone for the offensive plot. So the sports management of Mateu Alemany begins to comb the market.
The striker’s contract with the Catalan entity is signed until 2027, and its price is valued at 30 million euros. Although Barca paid 55 kilos in the winter market of 2022, and their claims are to recover most of the investment, they know that no club will pay more than 30 kilos. Thus, Laporta will listen to proposals of all kinds.
The reason why Valencia CF refused to do business with FC Barcelona by Ferran Torres
Basically, the black and white team gave up the signing of their former youth player for two very powerful reasons related to the economic situation they are going through. The first is precisely because they cannot carry out operations beyond 20 million euros, and the culé box will not receive less than that for one of its most expensive discards.
The second is why Valencia CF already has its attention on another signing for which they will pay, but much less, 5 million euros. We are talking about the pivot Pepelu, who will arrive from Levante UD, and is very close to stamping his signature and becoming a new player under the command of Rubén Baraja. So there is not much salary margin to think about the hiring of Ferran Torres.
