​Man City director Begiristain: We tracked Torres from some time

Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain has spoken about the club's long standing admiration for Ferran Torres.

The Valencia winger completed a deal to the English club this week.

He will join up with his teammates in due course, and should be ready for the next Premier League season starting in September.

"We have followed Ferran's progress closely and have been very impressed," Begiristain said at the transfer announcement.

"He is young and still developing, but his technical qualities are exactly what we are looking for in a winger.

"He is quick, direct, can create space with one movement and is capable of producing match-winning moments.

"I feel this is the perfect place for him to develop and with Pep in charge he can take his game to the next level."
