After Dani Alves, another reinforcement for Blaugrana He finished his teenage years two years ago, but when there are no results, Barcelona will do anything. Although, Ferran Torres has already proven quality, so this January could very easily be the biggest reinforcement of the stumbled giant from the Camp Nou stadium.
Torres' transfer from Manchester City was made official today, and the contract was signed until June 2027. It also includes a clause according to which Torres' freedom costs around one billion euros. The financial details of the transfer have not been published, but it was written earlier that Barcelona will give a fixed 55,000,000 euros, and another 10,000,000 could be earned by the Citizens in bonuses.
Of that amount, some 7,000,000 euros should be in easily achievable bonuses. However, Torres was presented with the motto "DreamTeen", which Barcelona wanted to allude to all the strong talents that Xavi Hernandez has at his disposal, from Ansu Fati, through Pedri, all the way to Gavi… And now Torres, although he is already 21 years old.
The most important thing for Xavi is that he can cover all three positions at the top, which he proved by playing as the most advanced striker for the Spanish national team, less often in Manchester City. Let us remind you, Torres is the second Jurassic reinforcement for Barcelona, although the club has yet to make room in the budget for his arrival, they probably already have some agreed exit transfers when Ferran's arrival was officially confirmed.
Veteran Dani Alves joined Xavi's team first. But Torres is a real bomb. And the most expensive Spanish reinforcement in the history of Barcelona. Given that Barcelona is in the biggest crisis in the last 20 years, this will certainly be a good solution given that Barcelona does not have any quality ahead, and a player like Torres can offer a lot.
Xavi will have a solid team at his disposal, but the question is whether they will bring in another name that could make a difference on the field. There is no money at the moment, but if they decide to sell some of the players, they could redirect the money to new reinforcements.
Xavi has serious plans with this generation, and it is obvious that a team like this is in need of an overhaul, which really lacks a leader like Messi. A new era is beginning!
Xavi will make many more moves ..
