News Reports suggest that FC Barcelona is looking for ways to facilitate a transfer exit for Ferran Torres. This could happen despite the Spanish forward having no desire to leave the club in the upcoming summer transfer window. Torres had a subpar first season at Barcelona, and with the club’s need to reduce their salary mass, his name has been mentioned as a potential departure.

Barcelona spent €55 million on Torres’ signing, and the forward still has four years left on his contract. Selling him outright may not be beneficial for the club unless it is for a massive offer. Therefore, the club is reportedly open to loaning Torres out next season with a purchase option to lower their wage bill and is actively working towards finding a solution.
Several Premier League clubs, including Aston Villa and Arsenal, and Atletico Madrid have shown interest in the Spanish forward. Recent reports suggest that Serie A giants Juventus and Inter Milan have also inquired about Torres’ situation at Barcelona and would be interested in signing him on loan.
Both Italian clubs are reportedly willing to pay Torres’ salary and take him on loan for the upcoming season. But they do not intend to sign him permanently this summer. However, Barcelona has not communicated anything to the player regarding his future, and things will only be set in motion once they win the La Liga title.
Despite the rumors, Torres is not contemplating an exit. He is determined to stay at Barcelona and win a place in Xavi’s side. Nevertheless, the manager plans to speak to the player and explain the club’s financial situation.
With Barcelona open to sending Torres out on loan, there should be no shortage of suitors for the Spanish forward. Ultimately, the player will have the final say on whether he stays or leaves in the summer.
