La Liga heavyweights have reached an agreement to sign Pablo Torres, with the 18-year-old Spanish prodigy set to complete his move in the summer.
La Liga heavyweights Barcelona have made an official statement to announce that they have reached an agreement to sign Pablo Torre. The 18-year-old Spanish whizkid will formally complete his move to the Catalan club in the summer transfer window, signing a four-year contract, with his release clause set at €100 million.
Pablo Torre is one of the most prodigious talents in Spain, having made tremendous progress since joining Racing Santander from CD Marina Sport at a very young age. Such has been the impact the teenage prodigy has had that he is already a key figure for Racing despite being only 18 years old.
Torre has been fantastic in the ongoing campaign, amassing six goals and seven assists in 23 appearances across all competitions. His performances have been critical in propelling Racing Santander to the top of Group 1 of the First RFEF. Some of the biggest clubs in Spain duly noticed the youngster’s exploits, with Barcelona now winning the race to sign him.
Initial reports suggested that Barcelona had to beat Real Madrid in the race to sign Torre from Racing Santander. While the two biggest clubs in La Liga were closely monitoring the 18-year-old’s progress at the third-tier club, the Blaugrana quickly took the lead in the player’s pursuit.

Reports earlier this week suggested that the Catalan giants were the front-runners to snap up the Racing Santander prodigy, and they have quickly wrapped up his signing. The young attacker will initially be assigned to Barcelona B, but he could soon become a regular fixture for the first team if he continues his rapid progress.
Barcelona’s financial struggles have forced them to integrate youngsters into the first-team squad in the last couple of years. Players like Pedri, Gavi and Nico Gonzalez are among the young stars to benefit from this outlook. So there is a high chance that Torre will be playing for Barcelona this time next year.
Torre will formally complete his move to Barcelona in the summer transfer window, when he will pen a four-year deal running through to June 30, 2026. The 18-year-old Spanish prodigy’s contract will contain a €100 million release clause, which indicates how highly he is rated by Barcelona.
