According to journalist Sergio Fernandez, Barcelona have reinitiated the process to register summer signing Pablo Torre as a first-team member with La Liga.
The 19-year-old midfield prodigy arrived at Camp Nou this past summer from Racing Santander. While he trains with the senior team, the teenager was not registered as part of the first-team setup with La Liga.
Instead, Torre remains on the Barça Atletic team list, although he has reportedly refused to play for the reserves so far.
Torre made his official senior debut for Barcelona this past week when he came on as a substitute in the UEFA Champions League clash against Viktoria Plzen. He has been named in the squad for Saturday’s La Liga encounter versus Cadiz, where he could get more minutes.
Now, it is being reported that Barcelona are making moves to register Torre to the first team. As per the report, the Catalans have once again requested a visa for the 19-year-old prospect after having withdrawn their earlier request for the same in order to register Jules Kounde.
But following the departures of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Sergino Dest and more recently Miralem Pjanic, there is enough space on the wage bill for Barcelona to fit Torre into the first-team list.
Hence, they have restarted the process for his registration with La Liga by submitting a request for a visa for the young Spanish prospect once again.
Torre arrived at Barcelona from Racing Santander after a fine season during which he helped his former club achieve promotion from the RFEF Primera Division to La Liga 2.
The youngster will now be hoping that he gets ample opportunities under Xavi Hernandez to prove himself at his new club.
