Man City refused strange Ferran Torres clause request from Barcelona

After Torres move, some interesting details about the deal have come to light.

Ferran Torres has been officially presented as an FC Barcelona player on Monday, after his move from Manchester City. After this move, some interesting details about the deal have come to light.

Football expert, Fabrizio Romano claims that a ‘first refusal’ clause has been put into Torres’ contract, which gives City an option to match any bids for Torres from potential competitors if Barca intends to sell him in the future.

The ever-reliable Lu Martin on the Què T’hi Jugues radio channel revealed certain complications faced by Catalan giants in concluding the deal.

As per the details of Lu Martin, Barcelona wanted to include a clause in the Torres deal which could see him move back to City at the end of January if Barca failed to register him into their squad, with the clubs to retry a deal in the summer.

The Premier Club refused to allow such a possibility, with club CEO Ferran Soriano telling Barcelona that the 21-year-old forward would be their business following the conclusion of the deal.

Lu Martin also reported that Barca owed Manchester City (roughly) €1.5million for the transfer of Denis Suarez, a transfer that took place in the summer of 2013.
