FC Barcelona take out a bank loan to buy Ferran Torres at 59 million euros.

The Cata­lan club have been forced to drop one of their all-time great­est play­ers, Lionel Mes­si, this sum­mer due to his dire finan­cial situation.

But now Bar­ca are con­sid­er­ing a rebuild, start­ing with Man­ches­ter City winger and Spain inter­na­tion­al Torres.

Accord­ing to Span­ish foot­ball expert Guillem Bal­ague, Bar­ca can afford to pay City more than € 59million in trans­fer fees after secur­ing a bank loan.

How­ev­er, La Lig­a’s finan­cial fair play could take a peek in the works.
Bal­ague claim Bar­ca will only be able to add him to the squad after sell­ing oth­er players.

A report on Mar­ca says both sides have set a Christ­mas dead­line for clos­ing the deal.
This leaves both par­ties less than a week to iron out the final conditions.

The 21-year-old is yet to return to action for City due to a bro­ken foot.

Tor­res was injured dur­ing the inter­na­tion­al break in Octo­ber and
missed 16 games in total for Pep Guardi­o­la’s side.
