Real Madrid want Valencia winger Ferran Torres

Real Madrid hold a longstanding interest in Valencia winger Ferran Torres, according to a report in Diario AS.

The 19-year-old, who is rated as one of the brightest prospects in Spain, penned a new contract with Los Che in April 2018 in a deal which runs through until 2021 – with a €100m release clause.

It is now said that Valencia are hoping to once again tie the highly-rated winger down to a new deal to ward off interest from Madrid, who have been following his progress for years.

Torres made his first team debut in November 2017 and has made 73 senior appearances for the club since, becoming a regular under Marcelino Garcia Toral and then Albert Celades.

The winger starred in the UEFA European Under-19 Championship in Armenia this year, netting both goals in a 2-0 final victory over Portugal and is now a member of the Under-21 side.

It is claimed that Madrid have been interested in Torres since his pre-teen days at the Mestalla and could make their move again next year.
