Barcelona’s interest in Ferran Torres has created a lot of excitement in the Catalan press, with the Manchester City forward making it to the front page of both Mundo Deportivo and Sport on Saturday.

We covered claims made by both newspapers, that said the 21-year-old has an agreement in place with the La Liga side. It’s now between the two clubs to agree a deal for the January transfer to take place.

It was also explained the English champions have set a starting price of €50m, while Barca are ‘looking for imaginative formulas’ that can please all parties involved.

Journalist Gerard Romero also states the agreement between the former Valencia man and Xavi Hernández’s side is ‘total’.

He furthers adds the Spain international would ‘significantly lower’ his salary demands to seal a switch to the Camp Nou. That, for now, won’t happen soon because of the €20m difference in valuation.

According to Romero, Pep Guardiola’s side are asking for €70m to cut ties with Torres, while Barca, for the moment, are ready to offer €50m.

Despite the difference, there’s a growing belief, at least in the Spanish media, the Manchester City player would end up at the Camp Nou in the winter market.
