Manchester City have completed the signing of Ferran Torres from Valencia.
The Spain U-21 international will be City’s first signing of the summer and the deal would cost Manchester City £21.1million plus add-ons.
The 20-year old has signed a five-year contract at the Etihad and will join the squad in the 2020/21 season.
Ferran Torres broke through the ranks at Valencia, where he made 97 appearances for the Spanish club and scored nine goals.
The talented winger earned several caps in the Spain U-21 squad and is capable of playing on either flank but prefers to deploy from the right.
“I am so happy to be joining City,” Torres said. “Every player wants to be involved in attacking teams and Manchester City are one of the most attacking in world football.
“Pep encourages a really open, aggressive style, which I love, and he is a manager with a proven track record of improving players. To have him overseeing my development is a dream.
“City have won plenty of trophies in the last 10 years and I hope I can play a role in continuing that success.”

City’s director of football Txiki Begiristain added: “We have followed Ferran’s progress closely and have been very impressed.
“He is young and still developing, but his technical qualities are exactly what we are looking for in a winger. He is quick, direct, can create space with one movement and is capable of producing match-winning moments.
“I feel this is the perfect place for him to develop and with Pep in charge he can take his game to the next level.”
