Barcelona summer signing will not leave club on loan – report



In an attempt to recreate Pedri’s success from 2020, Barcelona took a huge risk this summer, acquiring the services of Racing Santander teenage wonderkid Pablo Torre.

An attacking midfielder by trade, Torre spearheaded Racing into a 1st place finish in the Spanish third division. En route to promotion, they scored the highest goals in the division – 61, of which Torre had a direct hand in 19 (ten goals, nine assists).

However, the problem with recreating Pedri’s transfer with Torre is, Barcelona are filled up to the neck with talented midfielders. Apart from Pedri himself, the squad also has Gavi, Frenkie de Jong, Miralem Pjanic, Sergio Busquets, and new signing Franck Kessie.

Despite very talented, Torre is unlikely to break through this midfield immediately. As such, he has been asked to take his services to Barcelona Atletic. This decision did not sit well with him, apparently, and he was seeking a loan exit from Barça, possibly back to Racing.

However, according to reports from AS, Torre will stay at Barcelona. The Catalan giants have informed about their decision to Racing. The player only wanted to return to his former club, but that move has been called off now.

This decision comes on the back of a FIFA rule learnt by the club today, which states that teams cannot offload new players within 16 weeks of registering them. If Barcelona try to do that, they, along with Racing, will be sanctioned by FIFA.

Therefore, Torre will remain at Barcelona. He will get a few chances with the senior team, but will spend most of his matchdays with the reserves.
