Fans have mocked Ferran Torres after Barcelona’s £55million signing flopped on his highly-anticipated debut in El Clasico.
Barcelona crashed out of the Spanish Super Cup in semi-final defeat to bitter rivals Real Madrid on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old arrived at the Nou Camp from Manchester City at the beginning of the month but was only registered by the Catalan club on Monday due to their financial complications.
After Barcelona finally registered him, the Spain international made his debut against bitter rivals Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup semi-final.

But despite the grand build up, the forward lasted just 45 minutes into his maiden game for the Blaugrana before Barca boss Xavi replaced him with fellow Spanish starlet Pedri.
Torres’s rather lacklustre performance led to fans accusing the LaLiga side of overpaying for him after he failed to register a single shot on target.
One fan was quick to take to social media to slam the debut, posting: ‘Ferran Torres’s debut is disappointing – not worth 50 mil.’

One Twitter user joked that the striker had been feeling ‘dangerous’ as they highlighted that he had more yellow cards and substitutions than goals or assists in a Barca shirt.
‘Ferran Torres debut consists of a first half yellow & subbed off in the 46th minute. lol,’ another posted.
Other football fans were quick to express their disappointment at the new singing’s impact in the high-stakes clash.

Some claimed they had not noticed Torres was on the pitch, while another insisted that substitute Ansu Fati had more impact off the bench.
‘Ansu Fati came on as a sub and already made a bigger impact than Ferran Torres,’ one supporter wrote.
While another jokingly questioned: ‘Wait was Ferran Torres even playing?’
‘Ferran Torres yet to play a game of football for Barcelona,’ quipped another.
