Ferran Torres meets Manchester City director to seal move from Valencia

Ferran Torres is expected to seal a €27m (£24.5m) move to Manchester City from Valencia after the forward met Txiki Begiristain, the Premier League club’s sporting director, in Barcelona on Tuesday.

Leroy Sané’s departure for Bayern Munich caused Pep Guardiola to move for a replacement, with City negotiating a price €18m lower than Valencia’s initial valuation, though there are significant potential add-ons for a 20-year-old who has a year on his contract.

Torres met Begiristain to finalise the the move and it should be confirmed shortly. In November Torres became Valencia’s youngest player to feature in 50 La Liga games.

City are also expected to complete the signing of Nathan Aké in the coming days. Last week Bournemouth accepted a bid of about £40m for the 25-year-old Netherlands international.
