FERRAN TORRES CONTINUES HIS MERCURIAL FORM IN THE UCL
20-year-old Ferran Torress signed for Manchester City this summer after a brilliant season with Valencia. The Spanish winger caught the eye of many top European clubs, however, the Sky Blues managed to get their hands on the talented winger for just 23 million euros. The signing of Torres was to replace Leroy Sane and so far the 20-year-old has put up some clutch performances.
Torres continued his goal-scoring form in the Champions League as he netted his third goal in the Champions League against Olympiacos. The former La Liga man has now scored in all the three group stage games for the Sky Blues and will be hoping to continue this form for the rest of the season. The 20-year-old is yet to score his first Premier League goal, however, given his recent form, Torres will find the net sooner or later.
