This is how Pablo Torre’s present and future at Barça have been decided

BarcelonaThe arrival of autumn has brought peace to Pablo Torre’s situation at Barça. After a frustrating summer for the 19-year-old midfielder, in which he realized that in the short term it would be very difficult for him to have regular minutes in the Blaugrana first team, the stoppage for selections has allowed the player and the sports management to able to talk about what the roadmap will be. “Pablo Torre is ready to play with the subsidiary when necessary while still in the dynamic of the first team. From here on, it will depend on Xavi”, they explain to ARA from the Blaugrana sports management. “We rule out selling it during the winter market”, they add.

In fact, this Saturday Pablo Torre made his debut with the subsidiary in the victory over Murcia, and offered a great performance. It is the demonstration that the Cantabrian footballer has relaxed his initial position of having definitively closed the stage in the First Federation, a competition that he contested last year with Racing de Santander, which achieved promotion to Second as leader of the team This decision caused him not to train with the Barça subsidiary until last week and to even seriously consider returning to his former team on loan in the final stretch of the summer market, when he realized that the competition Barcelona wouldn’t allow him to have many opportunities. At first, Xavi opened this door publicly, but soon after he closed it arguing that for Pablo Torre’s growth it would be better to have him close by.

Thus, negotiations with Racing broke down. Alongside the sporting reason, there was another bureaucratic one. The Cantabrian club dismissed Pablo Torre beyond July 1st, which means that this season he has already been part of Racing and, according to the regulations, he cannot return until next season. But the troubles for the 19-year-old midfielder did not end there. In order to be able to sign up Jules Kounde, Barça decided, with the aim of freeing up too much salary, to withdraw from Pablo Torre the federal visa that the players of the subsidiary require to compete with the first team in the League.

This led to the summer signing market being closed without the Cantabrian being able to be called up by Xavi in ​​the League. For this reason, Pablo Torre could not even sit on the bench in the games against Valladolid and Sevilla. But the departure of Miralem Pjanic to the United Arab Emirates, already with the Spanish market closed, freed up more salary mass and the player with a file for the subsidiary (he is assigned number 32) was able to obtain the visa again to enter the call-up in front of Cadiz Anyway, after six games he still hasn’t made his league debut. Instead, he has done it in the Champions League. It was in the 5-1 victory over Viktoria Pilsen, in which he played the last 10 minutes. The only ones who have played so far with the first team in an official match.

Andorra, a team with ties

The lack of minutes makes Pablo Torre very nervous, especially when he is not even called up. But maintaining the desire not to play with Barça Atlético could harm his progression. So, from now on, he can be seen at the Johan Cruyff stadium with Rafa Márquez’s team when he is not in the first team and during the suspension of La Liga and the Champions League following the World Cup in Qatar between in November and December.

In any case, the First Federation is still not the category in which Pablo Torre wants to play. And the clubs that have been interested in a possible transfer of the midfielder are aware of this. Aside from Racing, there have been others. An option that fit quite well was that of Gerard Piqué’s Andorra, a Segona team geographically close to Barcelona and which bases its football on positional play. In addition, Pablo Torre has important ties there. The coach, Eder Sarabia, Quique Setién’s second in command at Barça, has a good relationship with the player’s surroundings. In fact, Pablo Torre is the son of Esteban Torre, a former Racing player who maintains a great friendship with Setién. On the other hand, the Barcelona footballer’s representative is Arturo Canales, who is also Gerard Piqué and Xavi Hernández. But from Barça they deny any transfer option this winter market.
