In spite of his delicate economic situation, the FC Barcelona has achieved an important signing to litigate by the titles in the second stretch of the season 2021-2022. In addition to Dani Alves, Xavi will be able to have Ferran Torres, the one who has arrived pertinent of the Manchester City in return of 55 million euros, more ten in variables. It is a player that has 'enamoured' to the Barcelona and that has showed an absolute commitment to be able to dress of culé.

Ferran lands in the Camp Nou with a short, but important path in the football of elite. It happened and it left footprint in Valencia, mudó to Manchester and achieved to give the big jump to the selection of Spain of Luis Enrique,p romediando at all more and at all less than 0,54 goals by party (12 so many in 22 clashes). Six of these so many were annotated in the Nations League, with two to Italy in the semifinals. It is a player with a big projection that will fit to perfection in the new Barça that is designing Xavi Hernández.

The new signing culé is of these players entertained to see, and has a lot of characteristics that turn him into one of the 'cracks' of the future. It initiated in the quarry of Valencia and to very short age debuted with the first team. Since, it has left sample of his big quality and ease to leave 'shows' where go. It is a polyvalent footballer, able to trick to his defenders and with a lot of potential in the rival area. Like extreme is in where better manages , by an impressive capacity of driving that facilitates him leave backwards to the rival sides.

It is of those that result impredecibles and difficult to read. It stands out by his dribble, but does not remain with this: Ferran feels extremely comfortable launching centres to the area to find striker and characterises by his good taking of decisions in the lawn. To this, great his big speed, positioning and height to improve, more if it wants , his game.

The versatility of Ferran

The polivalencia of the ex of Valencia is the point that more likes to the Barça and the reason by which Xavi has insisted from the day one in his signing from the City. In his 43 parties with the team directed by Pep Guardiola, has played in 18 opportunities like leading centre, the rest has divided in apparitions by the left and right band. With The Red of Luis Enrique, was presentadorecientemente like forward against Italy.

The ease to play in different demarcations is due to his big capacity to control and move to his taste, a factor that allows him project in a diagram of football based in the possession, that is, precisely, what is looking for 'give back' Xavi to the Barça. Of equal form, his speed and forcefulness help him to be a lethal player in the actions of contragolpe and the vertical game.

His roles (or aims) change, obviously, with his position. When playing by the left, plays like extreme invested, looking for play to inside and going directly in the research of the goal. By the right, instead, looks for to carry to his opponents to the maximum and opts for sending centres to the area, but also see goal he same. It is a player balanced and that looks for to annotate from different perspectives and without mattering the position in which it exert .

Where it will play in the Barça?

By his polivalencia, can fit in several positions, but what is more than clear is that it will be a key player so that Xavi fulfil his aim of the amplitude in the field. His rhythm and dribble are two factors that the egarense will have more than in account from now on and could split as much as extreme as of leading centre, by what will have sacrificed in the alignment of Xavi.

Like this then , the technician culé can opt by a trident with Ferran Torres by the right extreme, Ansu Fati in the left and Memphis like leading centre. However, it is the possibility that it was the one of Foios the one who split in the centre and Dembélé start by the right, sacrificing to the Dutch. It is not a secret for anybody that the ex of the Lyon has happened of 'irregular' in the last weeks and that the Barça, besides, has promised to 'Dembouz' that will have a key paper if it renews.
