Barcelona chef takes stock of Ferran Torres re-enrollment



Rafael Yuste, vice-president of Spanish giant FC Barcelona, ​​gave an update this evening on the club’s efforts to put Ferran Torres into action.

Torres secure

The subject of transfers has of course taken its prominent place in the evolution of Camp Nou in recent weeks.

It comes as new boss Xavi Hernandez prepares for his first opportunity to put a personal mark on the playing squad in the Catalan capital, through the January transfer window.

A host of Blaugrana stars have already been approached for outings, including Marc-André ter Stegen, Samuel Umtiti and even star midfielder Frenkie by Jong.

On the incoming side, the headlines of course came in the form of the high-priced arrival of talented Manchester City Ferran Torres:

Coutinho not enough

Although his signing was made official two weeks ago, Torres has yet to bow out at Barcelona.

This is due to two factors, first a Covid-19 fight, but, more importantly, the fact that the all-round wide man is yet to be signed up for La Liga action.

The Blaugrana, at this point, have been unable to make their latest addition available to boss Xavi, due to the club’s inflated payroll.

It was hoped that Philippe Coutinho’s departure on loan from Aston Villa, made official on Friday, would open up enough space to add Torres’ salary to their books, but, obviously, that didn’t prove the case.
