The Man City 2020 squad is the strongest with Ferran Torres

The Man City squad for the 2020/21 season will be very strong with a combination of Ferran Torres, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero in attack.

After a lot of speculation, Man City finally completed the signing of 20-year-old midfielder Ferran Torres from Valencia. 

Although Transfermarkt valued 45 million euros, the Green Man only had to spend 21 million pounds (23 million euros) to recruit Torres, because the player born in 2000 had a 1-year contract with the Spanish team.

Torres is pursued by many big teams like Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Dortmund or MU. However, he chose Man City because he wanted to play under Pep Guardiola.

With his pace, youth and technique, the 1.84-meter-tall player is believed to excel in the role of the striker to be familiar – last season he played 38 of 44 matches for Valencia in this position, and the position of the left and center strikers.

However, in the context that Raheem Sterling is doing very well on the left wing, while Sergio Aguero is the number 1 choice in the striker position, Torres is likely to play the “drill” on the right wing, where Riyad Mahrez frequently appear.

In addition to Torres, the former Premier League king has just returned to the Etihad center-back Nathan Ake from Bournemouth with an initial amount of 40 million pounds. In the 2019/20 season, Ake played 30 matches for the Dean Court team, scored 2 goals and had 2 assists.

With the official acquisition of Torres and Ake, coach Pep Guardiola can be somewhat assured with the current force. In the case of not buying more, the Green Man will start with pair of defenders Aymeric Laporte – Ake, two wings are Kyle Walker (right) and Joao Cancelo (or Benjamin Mendy).

Translated right above, Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne and young player Phil Foden are three names that can be chosen. Meanwhile, the trio of Torres – Sterling – Aguero will shoulder the responsibility of scoring in the 3-4-3 chart.
