Manchester United board making fresh plans to sign Barcelona forward who is available for €25m and perfectly suits Erik Ten Hag style of play

Manchester United are expected to invest on a marquee striker this summer but manager Erik ten Hag may also prefer another versatile addition to the attack.In our opinion, Barcelona’s Ferran Torres could be an enticing choice for the Red Devils, considering his ability to play on the right wing, left wing or up front.The Spaniard was hugely impressive for Manchester City with 16 goals and four assists from 43 outings but he has struggled to find the same consistency at Barca.He has amassed just 14 goals and eight assists from 65 appearances so far and it is now claimed by Culemania that the Catalans are prepared to sanction his exit.

The La Liga giants have their sights on re-signing Lionel Messi on a free transfer this summer but for this to happen, they will need to recoup funds from player sales.Torres was signed from the Cityzens for €55 million in January last year but it is now reported that he could be available for a cut-price fee of around €25m.In our view, United should make an approach to land the former Valencia graduate.

Torres would be a shrewd signing for Man Utd The Red Devils have been guilty of paying over the odds for attacking players in recent years.They must be clever with their investment this summer and we believe Torres would be a shrewd signing, given his previous success in English football with the Cityzens.Torres managed a goal contribution in every 133 minutes. This is quite impressive, considering he was largely in-and-out of the starting line-up under Pep Guardiola.If he were to join United, he may not be a regular starter but the Spaniard definitely has the ability to influence games with his knack for making goal contributions.Ten Hag likes to work with versatile attacking players and Torres seems a no-brainer signing for a knockdown fee. He would provide quality depth in the squad.
