Pep Guardiola confirmed the impending transfer from Ferran Torres to Barcelona on Thursday. In contrast, it appears that Manchester City is already looking for a player to take over Torres’ squad.
On Tuesday next week, so that it can be read at least in Spain, FC Barcelona must officially confirm Ferran Torres’ commitment. Before that came Pep Guardiola on Thursday, who verbally agreed to the next transfer. Torres had approached Manchester City and asked for a change.
“I always have the feeling that when Barcelona and Real Madrid knock on the door, it’s hard to say ‘no’,” Guardiola said during the press conference before the Boxing Day match at home against Leicester City (four in the evening on Sunday). “I want my players to be happy. If they’re not happy, they have to go.”
The Citizens can bridge the gap that Torres’ exit would leave with a player from the Premier League. According to a report in the Manchester Evening News, Jarrod Bowen (25) of league rival West Ham United is a candidate for the job.
With three goals and five assists, the winger has a big share in the rise of the Hammers, who are firmly in fifth place after 17 games. According to the report, a transfer fee of around 47 million euros will be owed by Bowen.
