While Barcelona might be in financial turmoil right now, their heritage and history cannot be changed. Barca has the winning philosophy and everyone knows that they are a team that belongs at the top of the world and with the very best. Yes, the club is severely torn apart at the moment, however, the crest itself holds a huge value, one that will attract the best players in the world. Even if the club cannot pay as much as the corporate fat cats such as Chelsea, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, etc, players will still want to join Barca since it is still one of the greatest clubs in the world.

This has been confirmed by former City player, Ferran Torres, who joined Barca in the Winter transfer window. The player was playing for one of the most dangerous teams in the world and under one of the best managers, the world has ever seen.

Ferran Torres hails Barcelona as the Dream move

He was getting paid well since City can afford to spend a lot of money and thus, there was really no need for the young player to move away from the Manchester side. However, he knew that he always wanted to play for the Catalan side and thus when he got an offer to move to the club, he knew he had to take it. He said in an interview with Barca Magazine,

"“Barça is the best club in the world, everyone knows its history: it always fights for all the titles. When I left Valencia to go to City, I knew I would come back to play for one of the best teams in the Spanish league. It was my dream. And it has come true,”Source Mundo Deportivo"

He went on to say that when he found out that Barca was interested, he told his agent to do whatever it takes to get him to that club. He has a genuine love for the club and he is hungry to cement his legacy in the greatest club in the world. He has started out well by scoring twice and assisting twice in seven appearances however, his finishing could improve a bit and if he manages to do that, there is nothing stopping him from being one of the greatest in the world.
