Ferran Torres admits he signed for Manchester City due to Pep Guardiola.

The 20-year-old was wanted by several clubs around Europe, including Juventus, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid.

But he chose City for his next team from Valencia, and is delighted with his decision.

Speaking to reporters, Torres said: “When I spoke to Pep he told me to come to Manchester, that my arrival would be important for the team and that he envisioned the club as a great place for me.

“From that point, to be honest, I was absolutely convinced to come.”
