Villarreal defender Pau Torres is garnering interest from a number of top Premier League clubs according to Fabrizio Romano.

Romano’s tweet states that “Pau Torres is attracting interest from top clubs again as his release clause will be valid this summer: €55/60m, available until the end of the market.

“Manchester United and Manchester City are both interested – Chelsea have also sent their scouts to follow him.”

Pau Torres Garners Premier League Interest

Available Quality

Ever since a loan spell with Malaga in Spain’s second division, Torres has been an ever-present fixture in the Villareal first team. In that time, El Submarino Amarillo have won the Europa League while Pau Torres received a call-up to the Spanish national team, where he has since been capped 17 times.

Torres’ ability is one thing but the key to his current interest levels is the fact that he is available this summer. Torres’ release clause of roughly £60 million is valid from this summer which means that any club to offer up the money can avoid a summer-long transfer saga.

Necessary Signing

The three main teams linked with Pau Torres are Manchester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea. Chelsea have a growing need to bolster their defence with Antonio Rudiger set to join Real Madrid. In addition, Cesar Azpilicueta and Thiago Silva are both ageing so a 25-year-old central defender would be of use to Chelsea for many years to come and freshen up the backline long-term.

Manchester United are seemingly intent on overhauling the team ahead of Erik ten Hag joining the club as manager and will need replacements for their current line of defender, who have largely been underperforming on the pitch.

Manchester City will also be looking to bolster their defensive lineup with Pau Torres. The side isn’t in desperate need of the player but he would provide them with added rotational depth in the defensive area.

Pau Torres will certainly be a name to watch this summer as a number of top clubs battle for his signature.
