Barcelona have completed the signing of Manchester City forward Ferran Torres in a £46.7m deal.

City accepted a bid for the Spain international last week and both clubs have now confirmed the transfer ahead of the January window formally opening this weekend.

Torres has signed a five-year deal at the Catalan club, with his contract including a €1bn buy-out clause.

Torres signed for City in the summer of 2020 and leaves less than 18 months later having scored 16 goals in 43 appearances.

A statement from Man City Director of Football Txiki Begiristain said: “Ferran should be proud of what he has achieved here at Manchester City.

“Last season was his first time in a new country, but he adapted well. He always gave 100 per cent, worked hard for the team and scored goals which helped us win trophies.

“Injury unfortunately prevented him from playing more games this season, but Ferran is a player we have all enjoyed working with and we wish him all the best at Barcelona and for the rest of his career.”
