Man City news and transfers LIVE

Manchester City have signed Ferran Torres from Valencia in a deal worth £20.8million.

The pacy winger passed a medical in Barcelona today and club officials afterwards completed the formalities of a five-year contract.

Torres is not expected to join up with the Blues until they return to training next month ahead of the new Premier League season, and is ineligible for the Champions League campaign which continues with the visit of Real Madrid for the second leg of the last 16 tie on Friday night.

“I am so happy to be joining City,” Torres said. “Every player wants to be involved in attacking teams and Manchester City are one of the most attacking in world football.

“Pep encourages a really open, aggressive style, which I love, and he is a manager with a proven track record of improving players. To have him overseeing my development is a dream.

“City have won plenty of trophies in the last 10 years and I hope I can play a role in continuing that success.”
