The Spain international left Valencia in 2020 to join Manchester City for a reported transfer fee of 23 million euros, signing a 5-year deal. He inherited the number 21 jersey, previously worn by City legend David Silva, a fellow Spaniard who also arrived from Valencia.
Torres spent 16 months in Manchester, scoring 16 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions. In his short stint, the forward helped his team win the Carabao Cup as well as the Premier League.
“Ferran should be proud of what he has achieved here at Manchester City.”, said Txiki Begiristain, City’s Director of Football. He went on to add, “Last season was his first time in a new country, but he adapted well. He always gave 100%, worked hard for the team and scored goals which helped us win trophies. Injury unfortunately prevented him from playing more games this season, but Ferran is a player we have all enjoyed working with and we wish him all the best at Barcelona and for the rest of his career.”
