Ferran Torres, a Liverpool and Real Madrid target, has signed a new deal that will keep him at La Liga club Valencia until 2021. The 18-year-old winger has broken into the La Liga side’s first-team this season and has impressed with his performances.
The report is carried by talkSport and claims that Madrid and the Reds have kept tabs on the Spaniard and were looking to make a move for the Valencia man in the summer transfer window.
Ferran, who has 7 La Liga appearances to his name this season, has made a single assist, and his performances have helped Valencia stay in the top four of the league.
Most of his appearances have come off the bench. However, the player is highly rated and his release clause was set at just €25million.
That has now changed according to the report, which claims that the player’s new deal has seen his release clause become €100m. Torres signed the new deal after talks with Valencia over the past few weeks and his future seems set for now.
Torres signed for Valencia’s youth team in 2006 at the age of six and has been with the club ever since. He made his name with the Valencia B team and his performances also saw him take part in the UEFA Euro U17 championship in 2017, which Spain won.
Torres made his debut for Valencia’s first-team on 30 November in a 4-1 win over Real Zaragoza. However, he made his La Liga debut on 16 December 2017 in a loss to Eibar.
The youngster is yet to complete a full game for Valencia so far but there still are a few games to go before the season ends and Torres will have time to impress a few more suitors during that spell.
