“It’s not done officially, I know they are negotiating and it is close. When the club announces, it’s done,” Guardiola told reporters on the departure of Ferran Torres.
“We are not a club like other clubs when players want to leave and the owner says ‘stay’. If they want to leave because they feel they will be happier in another place, they have to go. I am happy for him.”
Ferran Torres joined Man City from Valencia on August 4, 202o for a reported 23m euro fee, scoring 16 times in 43 appearances
Torres, who has played 22 times for Spain scoring 12 goals, has been out of action since sustaining a minor fracture on his right foot during the Uefa Nations League campaign.
