FC Barcelona who over five months ago developed interest in signing Spain and Manchester City’s Ferran Torres, are rebuilding their team after having crashed out of the UEFA Champions League this season.

Barcelona have signed Ferran Torres from Manchester City already this January, but, with things as they are at the club, they are currently unable to register the Spaniard as part of their squad.

The Spanish international who showed his frustration of not playing or having game time in the Manchester City squad, showed his desire and decision to leave the club during the summer transfer window, but couldn’t force his way out.

Alvaro Morata is also being linked with a move to the Camp Nou before the window closes, but the club know they need to move things around and offload players before they can add new players to their squad.

Alvaro Morata has showed his desire for a new challenge, and is seeking for a transfer from Juventus to FC Barcelona. According to reports, he has had discussions with the new Barca manager Xavier Hernandez.

“We know the problems we have and we know the position we’re in,” Barcelona director of football Mateu Alemany told Movistar when asked about Ferran’s registration.

“We evaluate these things when we make the decisions and we hope to solve the situation when we can.

“It [Yusuf Demir leaving] would help. There are a lot of ongoing situations that we hope we can complete this week.”

Alemany was also asked about the possibility of Morata joining as a gift for Xavi Hernandez.

“He asked me for Ferran,” Alemany said. “So we’ve already given him a gift.”

Barcelona fans would be excited to see how the club is trying its best to rebuild their team to the old Barca days of Iniesta, Xavi, Henry and so on.
