Winger Ferran Torres, who joined Barcelona from Manchester City in a 65 million euro transfer, has been cleared to make his debut against Real Madrid in Wednesday’s El-Clasico semi-final of the Supercopa de Espana.
The Spain international has dawned the eminent No.19 jersey that was once also worn by the likes of legendary Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi, Juan Antonio Pizzi, Patrick Kluivert, Dani, Maxwell, Sandro and Lucas Digne amongst others.
The Catalan supporters will be hoping that Ferran Torres plays an instrumental role in changing the future of the team since Messi’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain in 2021.

“It could be a turning point,” Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez said in a press conference in Riyadh. “Winning the Clasico will put us in the final and give credibility to the project. We are putting the league to one side to focus on a great competition. It’s a trophy,” the Barca manager added.
