Ferran Torres was born on 29 February 2000 in Foios (Valencia) and developed a passion for football at a young age. He started with futsal at the EPLA school before being noticed by the Valencia CF academy at just seven years old.
Ferran’s progress was impressive, and he quickly advanced to the Valencia first team. He made his Liga debut against Eibar on 16 December 2017, becoming the first player born this century to play in the competition. He had already debuted a few days earlier in a Copa del Rey game against Zaragoza.
Ferran Torres adapted well to top-flight football and played an increasingly important role in Valencia’s team, making 97 appearances and scoring nine goals from 2017 to 2020.
Manchester City and Pep Guardiola took notice of Ferran’s talents and signed him after his fine performances at Valencia. Ferran moved to the Premier League, where he shifted from winger to centre forward and quickly established himself as a prolific scorer, netting 11 goals in 30 games during his first season (2020/21) as Manchester City won the league and the League Cup.
In his second season with the club, Ferran scored two goals in four appearances before making the move to FC Barcelona in December 2021. Ferran Torres also played a key role for the Spanish national side, scoring two goals in Euro2020 and two more in the World Cup in Qatar in 2022 as Spain reached the semi-finals and last 16, respectively.
