Man City ace Torres could've been playing for Barcelona

Manchester City attacker Ferran Torres could've been playing for Barcelona this season, it has been revealed.

Torres is being celebrated in Spain this week after his hat-trick in La Roja's 6-0 Nations League rout of Germany.

Cadena SER says before Valencia sold Torres to City over the summer, he was the subject of a formal offer from Barca.

The Catalans tabled a cash plus player proposal in January, with Barca starlet Monchu the player in question. But Valencia gave the proposal short shrift.

VCF would later sell Torres to City for €25m down plus €12m in bonuses.
