Guardiola taught me so much, says Torres, the new Barcelona signing.

New Barcelona signing Ferran Torres said thanks to Pep Guardiola for his lessons as he conceded he generally intended to get back to LaLiga from Manchester City.

Torres was introduced as another Barca player on Monday after tying down a transition to Camp Nou in an arrangement that could be worth €65million.

The Spain global, who is recuperating from a foot injury, is probably going to need to delay until in the not-so-distant future to make his introduction as Barca should offload players before enrolling their new forward to try not to break their compensation cap.

Torres went through a year and a half with City after joining from Valencia for around €23m (£20m), showing up in all contests.

Among City players to include for no less than 1,000 minutes across all contests since the beginning of last season, Torres flaunted the most significant standards each hour and a half return (0.55) before he transitioned to Barca being affirmed.

His normal objectives on a for every hour and a half premise of 0.44, was bettered by Raheem Sterling (0.47) over that equivalent period.

The 21-year-old was to a greater degree a winger at Valencia however was regularly sent as a focal striker for City, and, normally, he will play in a comparable situation under Xavi at Barca.

Torres credits Guardiola with assisting him with turning into a flexible choice, telling journalists: "I adapted to such an extent. Guardiola is perhaps the best mentor on the planet.

"He got me to play in various positions, and I've figured out how to play as a striker. I leave with truly delightful recollections, and they assist me with confronting this test with desire, modesty, and a ton of fervor.

"I generally said I went to Manchester City to have the option to return one day to one of the large clubs in Spain. From the main second, Barca said they needed me, I didn't consider it.

"I come playing as a striker, yet I generally say my position is conservative. Yet, a player, when he is flexible, helps the mentor more. That is the thing that I plan to do.

"However long I play, I wouldn't fret about what the position is."
