Since joining Manchester City from Valencia last year, it’s fair to say that Ferran Torres has not looked back.

Things may have gone a little rocky at the Etihad towards the end of last season, but the Spanish youngster hasn’t let that affect him this time around.

With two goals and an assist to his name in three Premier League games already, this year is looking likely to be a big one for the 21-year-old, who some believe could be the striker Manchester City desperately need.

It’s going pretty well on the international stage, too, with Marca covering the player today and how he’s become the ‘undisputed favourite’ for Luis Enrique.

They explain how, since his debut just over a year ago, Torres has started 15 of the 20 games available and already scored ten goals in those.

Two of those came this week in the wins over Georgia and Kosovo, and his numbers need to be ‘taken into account’ as far as the newspaper is concerned.

Since his debut, they say he has been ‘practically unquestionable’ and has not disappointed, with those ten goals in 20 games, meaning he is averaging a goal every other game for his country thus far.

Those are numbers of a centre forward from a player who doesn’t play in that position. Furthermore, they’re close to being record-breaking numbers too.

Torres now only needs three goals to be Spain’s top goalscorer before the age of 22, with Real Madrid legend Raul holding the record on 13. It’s a record he could beat, given he has three, potentially four games to do it in too.

Luis Enrique is a big fan regardless and has been using his ‘versatility’ to play on the wing or upfront to great impact.

After starting the season ‘like a shot’ for Manchester City, Torres has carried his form into the international break, and it’s earning him plenty of praise as a result.

With near record-breaking numbers and performances which are becoming ‘more consistent’, Spain think they’ve got a superstar on their hands, and the praise is seemingly only going to be more forthcoming from here on out.
