Manchester United want to strengthen their central defense and if reports in the media are anything to go by, then they have made Pau Torres their prime target.
According to AS, Man Utd are obsessed and want to secure the signing of the Villareal star on priority basis in the next transfer window.
The famous Spanish media outlet have mentioned that the Yellow Submarine are only going to sell their prized asset if the release clause in his contract is met.
AS claim that currently, the 24-year-old center back has got a release clause of 50 million euros (£43.4million) but it would increase to 65 million euros in the final 15 days of the transfer window. It is stated that for now, the El Madrigal outfit have not received any offers for their star defender.
Goes without saying if Man Utd are serious about signing him then they should move to get his signing done before his release clause is increased.
Pau Torres, who has so far played 7 times for the senior national side, is the leader of the back-line at Villareal and should lead the defense for Spain once captain Ramos decides to retire.
For now, Solskjaer has got Lindelof and Maguire in the central defense and the duo have been inconsistent at the back. Bailly has been injury prone over the years and Tuanzebe has mainly been a bench warmer at Old Trafford.
The Norwegian manager needs a leader, someone to transform the defense, just like Van Dijk did at Anfield. In your view, should Man Utd splash £43.4million to sign Pau Torres?
