Few players have attained to win the gafete of 'indisputable' for Xavi Hernández and Ferran Torres is one of them. The FC Barcelona paid 55 million euros to the Manchester City by his traspaso, an important figure considering the financial problems of the club and the little activity of the of Foios in during 2021. However, the forward attained to consolidate like titling from January and, in spite of the criticisms by his fault of goal, the technician egarense kept him in the eleven to the end of the season.

With agreement until 2027 and a clause of 1.000 million euros, Ferran arrived with the obligation to help to amend one of the main problems of the club in the first semester of the season: the drought goleadora. In spite of not being a '9' born neither a 'killer' consecrated, the fans and the press blaugrana fixed the vara high for the player of 22 years and a very limited patience, as it is used to suceder in the big teams.

To Ferrran cost him 'wet' with the Barça and the Camp Nou did not take in signalling him. Although it turned into his second party on 20 January in Sam Mamés (defeat 2-3 in front of the Athletic in Glass of Rey), the alone forward added a pair of assistances in his first five parties of LaLiga. Recently on 6 March it could première like goleador in a tournament where finished adding 4 so many and 4 assistances. His another goal arrived in the gone of the 'playoff' of the Europe Bequeath (1-1 in front of the Napoli), a party in which it finished between tears after malograr several opportunities and win some whistles of the fans.

Nevertheless, Xavi kept him always in the eleven. The contribution of Towers in the preparation of game was very valuable for the míster of Terrassa, by which Ferran was to title during all the semester (only in a party of League started from the bank), playing the majority of complete parties. "It is a footballer of another level, spectacular. How it understands the spaces, associates , does not lose balloons, is of a world-wide top level. It was a spectacular signing and a wonder of player", said Xavi on the forward.

Ferran will start like titling the 2022-23

Further of the plans of the club to incorporate to forwards like Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha, the place of Ferran Torres in the eleven is ensured for the beginning of the next season. The possible exit of Memhpis Depay and the doubts on the physical state of Ansu Fati do that, for the time being, there is not another player to play like extreme by left that convince to the míster culé.

Of the same way, the one of Foios has won the confidence of Luis Enrique in Spain. The forward was to title in the debut of the Nations League in front of Portugal (1-1) and ingresó in the second time in front of Czech Republic (2-2), contributing to the mejoría showed by 'The Red' in the complement. Without too many reflectors neither spectacular statistics, Ferran always fulfils from the physical and the tactical. Thus, few doubt of his presence in Catar and, for Xavi, is the only reliable letter in attack. For now.
