Torres to sign for Barcelona

Barcelona are expected to sign Manchester City Ferran Torres before the end of the week, according to Sport.

The Spain international has been with the Cityzens for the past 18 months, but he appears set to return to La Liga.

Torres has been a long-term target for the Blaugrana, and they are now on the cusp of landing his signature.

Pep Guardiola recently confirmed that a deal is very close, and Sport claims that the move could be finalised soon.

The clubs are currently negotiating the timescale for the payments, and an announcement is on the horizon.

Torres will undergo his medical with Barcelona by tomorrow. A deal could be confirmed on Christmas day.

Meanwhile, the arrival of the Spaniard could coincide with the exit of several high-profile players next month.

The Blaugrana are under spending restrictions set by La Liga amid the excess wage bill that needs to be slashed.

Samuel Umtiti, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho are among players, who could be offloaded in January.
