City signs winger Torres

Manchester City has announced the signing of Valencia winger Ferran Torres as Pep Guardiola looks to bolster his attacking options. The 20-year-old Spaniard, City’s first signing of the summer transfer window, has penned a five-year contract for a reported initial fee of 20.9 million pounds (US$27 million). “I am so happy to be joining City,” Torres told the English Premier League club’s website. “Every player wants to be involved in attacking teams and Manchester City are one of the most attacking in world football.” Guardiola is keen to strengthen his squad following the loss of its EPL title to Liverpool — it has also agreed a 41-million pound fee for Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake. Torres can play on either wing and operate through the middle, with pace and an ability to beat players his main attributes. He made 44 appearances for Valencia last season, scoring six goals.
