Liverpool and Man Utd launch enquiries as Valenica could slash star’s £92m release clause
Liverpool and Manchester United could be caught in a battle to sign Valencia winger Ferran Torres, according to reports. The young forward is currently locked in negotiations over a new deal with the Spanish side, but with no agreement in sight, the Spanish giants could slash his release clause.
Torres is currently a man in demand.
The 20-year-old has a contract with Valencia until 2021, and is currently in talks over an extension.
However, those talks have apparently stalled, and Valencia are faced with a daunting prospect of losing him for free.
In order to avoid losing him on a free, the La Liga side will apparently slash the winger’s release clause.

His release clause currently stands at a staggering £92million, though it is unlikely that any club will meet it.
And if he leaves on a free next summer, the sum Valencia will receive at a tribunal will be much less.
Therefore, Valencia will apparently set a different asking price this summer in order to receive some money back from their prized asset leaving.
This news has clearly reached a host of European teams, and Torres is in high demand as a result.

As well as Liverpool and United, Juventus, Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen all interested.
His future could rely on the decisions other clubs make, however, as he could be used as a backup for certain teams.
Dortmund are expecting a flurry of big-money bids for Jadon Sancho this summer, and will likely turn to Torres as a replacement.
Leverkusen, too, are bracing themselves for teams to try their luck with Kai Havertz, with Liverpool believed to be desperate to sign him.

Bayern Munich were believed to be interested in 20-year-old Torres, who has scored six goals in 35 games in all competitions this year, but their interest has reportedly cooled.
That’s because the German champions are expecting to sign Leroy Sane from Manchester City, and will be unlikely to spend big on two players in one window.
If City do part ways with Sane, it is believed that Torres could be the ideal replacement.
