🚨 OFFICIAL: Ferran Torres registered as Barcelona player

Barcelona have confirmed the registration of Ferran Torres, two weeks after signing him from Manchester City. 

The winger's registration with the Spanish Professional Football League has been pending as Barca sought to find a way to increase their ‘financial fair play’ quota. 

This was made possible on Monday afternoon as the club reached an agreement with Samuel Umtiti, who agreed to take a pay cut. 

The Frenchman further extended his contract with the Catalan club until June 2026.

A statement from the club read; 

"FC Barcelona wishes to publicly express its gratitude to Samuel Umtiti for his willingness and the affection that he has demonstrated towards the club.

"Through this contract extension, FC Barcelona will be able to increase its ‘financial fair play’ quota and thus register Ferran Torres with the Spanish Professional Football League,"

The latest development is a great boost for Barcelona and coach Xavi Hernandez, who can now field the Spanish international in the upcoming weekend clash.
