Ferran Torres explains the reason behind his move to Camp Nou.
The Spaniard decided to leave Man City this January to play under Xavi at Barcelona.
He joined Barca for a fee of around €55m plus add-ons and managed to score 13 goals in 36 appearances across all competitions for the Cityzens.
He struggled for game time under Pep Guardiola and decided to move to Camp Nou despite their financial struggles.
“My season was very complicated. First I had the injury, which was very serious,” Torres said. “Then I signed for Barça, who were going through a very difficult situation.
“I could have stayed at Manchester City winning many titles, but I wanted a new challenge. Signing for Barcelona is an honour in itself, but when Xavi calls you, it’s a no brainer”
He added: “As a winger I don’t consider myself a striker, it’s not up to me to score goals. I’m capable of scoring, when I can I have to give assists, but I’m proud that it has given the team more work than the goal. I’m ambitious and I don’t want to fail, but I don’t mess with my head at all.”
