Manchester City star is ready to sign a new contract with the club that will enhance his salary by 150 percent. The Spanish international, who hasn’t played since September due to injury, is close to signing a new contract with the Premier League giants, according to the Daily Star. Torres’ contract will be extended for another two years, and his pay will be increased from £40,000 to £100,000 per week.
Since joining for £20 million last year, Torres has surprisingly established himself as one of City’s main offensive threats. The winger was seen as a possible David Silva successor. Sergio Aguero, on the other hand, might be a better parallel for the 21-year-old. In 43 appearances for Valencia, the former Valencia striker has scored 16 goals. When Torres is totally fit, Pep Guardiola will use him as the focal point of the attack. Torres has proven to be a wise investment since arriving in Manchester a year ago, and his new contract reflects his recent form. Since moving to England, the winger has starred for both City and Spain. Torres was one of La Roja’s best performers at Euro 2020 this summer, helping Luis Enrique’s team reach the semi-finals. Torres is one of the lowest-paid players in the City squad based on his recent form, which is absurd at face value. Furthermore, this new agreement will make it clear that the Spaniard will play a significant role in City’s future. Torres might be the club’s answer to replacing Aguero, and his new contract will more than entice the 21-year-old to push the team to new heights.
