Man United’s hope of landing their transfer target Ferran Torres has been dashed after Marca reports that Man City have already agreed on personal terms with the player.

The right-winger was Man United’s target and was penned down as an option in case they fail to land the signature of Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho as a result of the high fee demand.

Fernan Torres is believed to be available on a cheaper fee than the England international but he is not regarded as the major choice target for the Red Devils. Man City have, therefore, taking advantage of the situation to land the winger.

However, the Pep Guardiola team are yet to agree on a fee with Fernan Torres as they are not willing to pay more than £31.8 million due to financial limitations as a result of the effect of the pandemic.

This development will force the Red Devils to look elsewhere for other options as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to impress this next season, as such, will be storming the summer transfer market to recruit quality players to the team.

Howbeit, the transfer dealings of Man United will depend on their success in securing a Champions League spot.
