Barcelona’s interest in Ferran Torres is genuine.
Of course, it was sanctioned by Xavi. The main question is why?
Torres is only 21, which means he still has a bright future in front of him.
It’s also makes sense to sign a young striker to interact with a team packed with so many youngsters, particularly in midfield.
Torres is noted for his ability to play anywhere among the front three.
Hence, Xavi won’t have too much of a headache regarding where his best position is.
He could even form a terrifying partnership with Ansu Fati.
The former is right-footed, stands 1.84m tall and isn’t bulky, he weighs just 77kg.
That tells you he can run, dribble and shoot, and finish off half chances.
He was also signed by Pep Guardiola, which means his ability to create and score goals has been subjected under one of the best microscopes in football and deemed good enough.
All that highlights a player that perfectly fits Barca’s style under Xavi. Sign him up.
