Signed from Valencia for what many saw as a paltry fee, Ferrán Torres has been a hit under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

Moved from a wide position to a more central one as a striker, the Spain international has thrived in his new role, scoring 16 goals and assisting another four in 43 appearances for the Cityzens, as well as scoring aplenty for the Spain national team (12 goals in 22 caps).

However, the forward will always hold a special place in his heart for Valencia, the club he was at between 2006 and 2020, and one where he would like to return to one day.

The player revealed as much in an interview with Jorge Valdano on Movistar+, where, relayed by AS, he was asked directly about his former side.

He said: “Valencia are my club. I’d like to return in the future. So many years at Valencia. It was a bit difficult with the criticisms, but for me, Valencia is my club”.

As for his time at Manchester City so far, he admitted that he signed for them ‘as a winger and was reconverted to a forward’.

He also had some nice words to say about Guardiola, thanking him for the change, because he is ‘delighted to be close to the goal’, describing the feeling as a ‘unique’ one.
