Atletico Madrid, alert to Ferran Torres's situation at Barca

The Catalans are ready to sign Carrasco from Atletico so it could make sense

Ferran Torres could be an option for Barca to sell in the summer. The forward has not earned a regular start at Camp Nou, and other clubs will be interested - he could be a good source of funds. Xavi likes the Spanish winger but money could talk.

Atletico Madrid have asked about his situation, during the negotiations that took Memphis to the Metropolitano.

Atletico want an attacking revolution and hope to sell Joao Felix, while Yannick Carrasco could join Barcelona. Lemar is out of contract, and Morata’s future is in doubt, so only Correa and Griezmann seem set to stay there.

Ferran Torres would fit in and Atletico could use Carrasco to Barca as the base of the deal.

Barca did not listen to offers for Ferran in January despite some clubs wanting him on loan. Xavi thinks Ferran can turn the situation around.

He cost Barca 55m euros, although a part of that is already amortised and they could lower his exit price by 10m euros if needed.

Barcelona have decided they want Carrasco, so Atletico could make sense. Premier League sides are also paying attention.
