Manchester City's newest signing, Ferran Torres today spoke to the club in his first official interview since signing from Valencia.

On why he ultimately decided on City, Torres said: “My aim is to grow as a player, I have a lot of room for improvement and the fact of having Pep Guardiola was a big reason [why I joined Manchester City] too.”

He also discussed what attributes he can bring to club, highlighting two main personal strengths. "I'd say that I have more strength than speed. I also make good crosses, but above all I'd highlight my power and strength.”
