Manchester United ‘to face intense competition for Pau Torres’

BY JOHN WERU,12TH APRIL,2022-Manchester United will reportedly face competition from a number of Premier League clubs if they press ahead with a move for Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres this summer.

The Spain international was strongly linked with a move away from the Yellow Submarine last year, but he remained with the La Liga outfit and has enjoyed another impressive campaign, scoring five times in 38 appearances in all competitions.

According to Goal, Villarreal are unlikely to be able to keep hold of the defender during this summer’s transfer window, with a host of clubs interested in his signature.

The report claims that Man United, Manchester CityChelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are all admirers of the 25-year-old, while Real Madrid have also recently been credited with an interest.

Villarreal will allegedly refuse to let Torres leave ‘on the cheap’, but the defender’s contract with the Yellow Submarine only has little over two years left to run.

Despite acquiring Raphael Varane from Real Madrid last year, the Red Devils are thought to be keen to sign another centre-back this summer, with Eric BaillyPhil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe potentially all leaving the club in search of pastures new.
