Manchester City have announced the signing of the 20-year-old winger Ferran Torres from Valencia.
Torres has penned a five-year deal at the Etihad Stadium, and becomes the Premier League runners-up's first major summer arrival.
“I am so happy to be joining City,” Torres told the club website.
“Every player wants to be involved in attacking teams and Manchester City are one of the most attacking in world football.
“Pep encourages a really open, aggressive style, which I love, and he is a manager with a proven track record of improving players. To have him overseeing my development is a dream.
“City have won plenty of trophies in the last 10 years and I hope I can play a role in continuing that success.”
Torres broke into the Valencia team in the 2017/18 season, and played 97 times for the club having come through the youth ranks.
He scored six goals in 44 appearances last season, and joins the ranks of Spanish players under Guardiola's tutelage.
City Director of Football Txiki Begiristain said: “We have followed Ferran’s progress closely and have been very impressed.
“He is young and still developing, but his technical qualities are exactly what we are looking for in a winger. He is quick, direct, can create space with one movement and is capable of producing match-winning moments.
“I feel this is the perfect place for him to develop and with Pep in charge he can take his game to the next level.”
