Man City boss Guardiola ‘has called’ Valencia star Ferran Torres

Pep Guardiola has contacted Valencia sensation Ferran Torres about a move to Manchester City, it is claimed.

Spanish journalist Héctor Gómez, a specialist in Valencia matters, went into detail about Torres’ situation for Golsmedia.

With eight days to go before La Liga returns, VCF have failed to convince Torres, 20, to renew his contract.

Torres’ deal runs until June 2021 and if they can’t secure his long-term future, a sale could happen this summer.

According to Gómez, Man City coach Guardiola ‘has even called the player’ and his scout in the Iberian area, Rubén Comendez, has watched Torres for months.

Real Madrid also want to sign the right winger, a Spain under-21 international. Florentino Perez considers Torres the future of Spanish football and believes he would be value for money.

From the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have presented offers to the player.

Serie A champions Juventus have sent at least three different scouts to monitor Torres’ performances at the Mestalla.

Torres favours La Liga?

In an interview with Club del Deportista, Torres refused to speak about a contract renewal, but did say La Liga is the best competition.

Those words may encourage Real Madrid, who have been focusing on young signings for the future.

However, the phone call from Pep Guardiola may give the young jewel of Valencia something to think about.

Torres is valued at €45m by the Transfermarkt website, a price that takes his contract situation into consideration.

This season, Torres has six goals and six assists across La Liga and the UEFA Champions League.

His future will be one of the big stories of the next transfer window. Can Valencia convince him to stay or will he join a super-club such as Man City, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich?
