Ferran Torres: Man City winger explains Valencia departure

Ferran Torres has made five appearances for Spain Under-21s

New Manchester City winger Ferran Torres says he left Valencia in part because they would not make him captain and one of their highest-paid players.

Torres, 20, said he was “excited and happy” to join City, after completing his £21m move from the La Liga side.

“I wanted to stay and I put forward the conditions to do so. They weren’t above the club’s means,” he told Marca.
