BARCELONA have paid Manchester City just £2.6m of the agreed £48.4m fee for striker Ferran Torres, it has been revealed.
The 22-year-old Spaniard left the Etihad to join the Catalan giants in January.
An agreement was reached despite Barcelona’s well-documented financial crisis.
And they went on to sign Raphinha, Jules Kounde, Robert Lewandowski, Franck Kessie, Andreas Christensen, Hector Bellerin and Marcos Alonso in the summer window.
But the Torres transfer payment is far from complete.
Less than £3m of the £48.4m fee was paid to Man City, according to the CCMA.
And the Torres deal is just one of several fees Barca have yet to pay.
They owe Ajax £28m for Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who they signed in 2019.
Juventus are awaiting the transfer of Miralem Pjanic to the Nou Camp two years ago with more than £31m.
And Barca are also yet to pay Liverpool £12m for signing Philippe Coutinho in 2018.

However, they are awaiting nearly £9million from Aston Villa after signing Coutinho on a permanent basis earlier this year.
Torres has scored eight goals and provided seven assists in 33 games for Barcelona.
But he has started just two out of six La Liga games so far this season, with the likes of Lewandowski, Raphinha and Ousmane Dembele giving preference to the ex-Man City man.
