Barcelona have agreed a deal with Manchester City forward Ferran Torres, according to reports in Spain.

The Catalans are on the hunt for a new striker with Sergio Aguero, who only moved to the Camp Nou in the summer, set to retire over heart problems.

The La Liga side's plans to replace the Argentinian are also hampered by a disastrous financial plight.

But according to Spanish outlet Marca, they have agreed a deal with Torres.

However, a deal between the two clubs is yet to be agreed and it's not clear how they plan to finance the deal given their debt.

The report claims that Torres' agent was in Barcelona on Tuesday to push through the agreement.

Director of footballer, Mateu Alemany, was claimed to have flown the other way for talks.

It is understood the player has been promised first-team football, which he has not always found under Pep Guardiola.

Torres joined City from Valencia in 2020, and he is currently out of action through injury.

City are in fine form after a brilliant 2-1 win over PSG on Wednesday.

Following the game, Guardiola was full of praise for Raheem Sterling, who has battled Torres for a place in the line-up.

He said: "I'm so glad for him, he's helped us for sure. He will fight to be better and better.

"It is important for strikers and wingers to score and make assists. He was decisive and decisive in what we've done in recent years.

"Scoring goals can give confidence for these type of guys but he has to do better, be aggressive, go one against one, arrive in the final third. This is the first step for him to come back.

"The attitude has always been good and I've always said to the players, 'make demands of yourself but don't put a lot of pressure on your shoulders'.

"In a career as a player, you cannot always be 10 out of 10. You have highs and lows. The important thing is not to get that low.

"Go on the pitch when you have the opportunity to play and do your best. That's all."
