Barcelona latest news: Ferran Torres is officially registered – Ferran Torres has officially been registered as a Barcelona player.

But after Samuel Umtiti agreed to a wage cut this week, Torres has been allowed to sign. It means that the former Valencia man will be in the squad for tomorrow’s Supercopa clash with Real Madrid.

Barcelona extended Samuel Umtiti’s contract until 2026 on Monday, a deal that creates enough space in the club’s budget to register Ferran Torres, their new signing from Manchester City. Torres has been unavailable to play for Barca since joining two weeks ago because registering the striker would mean falling foul of La Liga’s spending restrictions.

Umtiti’s three-year extension means his wages will be spread over a longer period of time, which in turn reduces the amount Barcelona are due to pay in the current financial year. Barcelona also said “the French defender is reducing a part of the salary that he was due to receive in the year and half remaining on his contract”.

The club added: “This contract extension does not entail any greater financial commitments for FC Barcelona with regard to the player.” The extension came as a surprise given Barcelona have been trying to sell Umtiti to help reduce the club’s debts of more than a billion euros. His previous contract was worth around 18 million euros per year.
