Ferran Torres Transfer News: Juventus is reportedly interested in signing Ferran Torres, as reported by Calciomercatoweb (an Italian news website). The Serie A powerhouses are looking to replace World Cup champion Angel Di Maria with the Barcelona forward. Whether or not the Catalan giants try to reclaim the €55 million they spent to get him is something to keep an eye on.
During his brief professional playing career, Ferran Torres has seen it all. The Spanish national, who came up through the ranks of Los Che’s academy, began his professional career with Valencia. He played with Valencia for a while, then in August of 2020, he signed for Manchester City. His time with the Premier League winners lasted only 18 months before he moved on to Barcelona.
The €55 million spent by the Blaugrana to acquire Torres’ services was a reasonable sum. But the 23-year-old has failed to make an impact and has instead served as Xavi Hernandez’s backup. His stat line of six goals and two assists in 37 games is, to put it mildly, underwhelming. The player’s value hasn’t dropped, however, and Juventus is still interested in signing him.
With Angel Di Maria’s future in doubt, the Serie A powerhouses are shopping for a wide attacker. The champion of the 2022 FIFA World Cup might decide to leave Juventus after just a year. To fill Di Maria’s shoes at the Allianz Stadium, the Bianconeri will need a player of comparable quality.

Even more concerning for the Serie A team is the future of Federico Chiesa. The Italian international may be leaving in the summer transfer window due to interest from numerous big teams. As a result, Juventus now has a realistic chance of signing Ferran Torres. And the forward from Barcelona could make the best choice by relocating to Italy.
Torres, who excels on the right wing, is seen as a long-term successor for Di Maria by the Serie A powerhouses. Barcelona has been interested in the World Cup champion for about a year. The Catalan powerhouses are prepared to cash in on the 23-year-old.
It remains to be seen whether Barcelona would attempt to reclaim the €55 million they spent on Torres’ transfer. The Spanish national’s place is now on the line at Spotify’s Camp Nou office. And a transfer to Juventus, where he hopes to restart his career, is certain.
