Ferran Torres is said to have passed his Barcelona medical ahead of his £55 million move to the Nou Camp when the transfer market opens in January.
Torres, 21, was expected to be Barcelona’s main priority next month, with new manager Xavi anxious for a striker after Sergio Aguero’s surprise retirement due to a heart problem.
City approved a £55 million deal for the young Spaniard last week, with former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola refusing to stand in the way of the versatile forward’s move to Catalonia.
Ferrán Torres arrives for his official medical examination as a new Barcelona player. A statement from the club will be released soon.
Torres shared a video on Boxing Day training at former club Valencia’s base, and Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reports that he has passed his medical as he inches closer to securing his switch.
