But after Samuel Umtiti agreed to a pay cut this week, Torres was cleared to sign. This means the former Valencia man will be in the squad for tomorrow’s Supercopa match 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 not been available to play for Barca since his arrival two weeks ago as the forward’s registration would amount to breaching La Liga spending restrictions.

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

The club added: “This contract extension does not lead to greater financial commitments for FC Barcelona vis-à-vis the player.” The extension came as a surprise as Barcelona were looking to sell Umtiti to help reduce the club’s debts of over € 1 billion. His previous contract was worth around 18 million euros per year.
