Man City signed Ferran Torres for just £21million and with each passing game, more and more people are asking: ‘How?’

The Spaniard, who joined from Valencia for the cut-price fee in the summer, continued his brilliant season on the international stage as he hit a superb hat-trick in Spain’s 6-0 humiliation of Germany on Tuesday evening.

The Man City forward is proving to be a snip at £21million

The 20-year-old’s brilliant treble was the first against Germany since Michael Owen for England in September 2001.

It was a five star display from La Roja, who topped their Nations League group with the result.

Alvaro Morata opened the scoring before Torres and his club teammate Rodri extended their advantage to 3-0 before the interval.

Despite losing Sergio Canales and Sergio Ramos to injury in the first half, Luis Enrique’s men re-emerged looking equally as potent following the break.

They got their fourth goal just before the hour mark thanks to another smart break that led to Jose Gaya squaring unselfishly for Torres to score his second.

Oyazarbal’s 89th minute effort wrapped up a sensational win for the one-time World Champions.

Spain are now through to the Nations League semi-finals – which take place next October.

They join France, who finished top of Group 3 after a 3-2 win against Sweden, in the last four.
