Ferran Torres: Barcelona able to register forward after Samuel Umtiti agrees new pay cut deal


Barcelona say they are able to register Spain forward Ferran Torres, two weeks after he joined the club from Manchester City.

A new extended contract for defender Samuel Umtiti, which sees the Frenchman take a pay cut, has allowed the Spanish club to complete Torres’ registration.

Barca said Umtiti’s new terms meant they “will be able to increase its ‘financial fair play’ quota”.

The arrangement comes at time that the club deals with financial troubles.

Barca were able to fund the £46.3m deal – which includes £8.3m in add-ons – thanks to a recent bank loan.

“FC Barcelona wishes to publicly express its gratitude to Samuel Umtiti for his willingness and the affection that he has demonstrated towards the club,” Barca said in a statement, which confirmed how the Frenchman has helped the club finally register Torres.
