Ferran Torres’ Barcelona contract has mega release clause after Man City exit

Ferran Torres has completed his move from Manchester City to Barcelona after falling out of favour at Pep Guardiola's side.

Torres has been linked with a move back to Spain throughout December, with Barca the most likely candidate to land his signature in January.

And that move has now been made official with Torres pulling the curtain on his Manchester City career after just a season-and-a-half at the Etihad.

Xavi's side will pay an initial £46.7m, with that fee rising to £55.2m through a variety of add-ons.

However, Torres' new contract will have a €1billion release clause built into it.

Manchester City Director of Football Txiki Begiristain said: “Ferran should be proud of what he has achieved here at Manchester City.

"Last season was his first time in a new country, but he adapted well.

"He always gave 100 per cent, worked hard for the team and scored goals which helped us win trophies.

"Injury, unfortunately, prevented him from playing more games this season, but Ferran is a player we have all enjoyed working with and we wish him all the best at Barcelona and for the rest of his career."
