FC Barcelona reportedly offer Ferran Torres back to Man City
By Mudeet Arora
La Liga side FC Barcelona have reportedly temporarily offered Ferran Torres back to Manchester City as they have concerns that they won't be able to register their new signing.
Barcelona unveiled their new star after having paid an initial £46 million to sign him on a five-year contract. However, the club's financial situation does not allow them to register the player yet.
The Blaugrana were said to be pretty worried that they might not be able to make space for Torres on their wage bill and according to Cadena Ser, they thought about sending the Spaniard back to City for the rest of the season if they wouldn't be able to register him.
FC Barcelona are reported to be paying Torres transfer fee to City in four installments. Additionally, they owe City €1.5million for Denis Suarez from some years back.
Barcelona's director of football Mateu Alemany spoke about this issue and said, "The reality is that when we signed Ferran we knew we had no salary to register him just yet.
"We assume we can and we have been working on various ways in which to do this.
"We are convinced that we will achieve it before Sunday [when Barcelona play Granada]."
