£50 million defender generate Chelsea talk but announcing desire ‘to represent important club’
Villareal defender Pau Torres continues to generate talk of interest from Chelsea ahead of the summer transfer window
A product of Villarreal’s academy system has taken in 77 appearances for the Yellow Submarine and after establishing himself as a regular in that starting squad, his regular ole has been enjoyed across the last two seasons, allowing seven international caps to be claimed.
His performances for both Spain and Villareal has led to alot of speculation that Chelsea have joined the likes of Manchester City and United in the chase to try and get a transfer deal done, especially as the young man has a bright future in the game.
The 24-year-old Spain international is aware of the interest he is attracting, and rather than shy away from all the speculation, he has come out and announced that he does have a desire to represent an important club in the future.
Torres has told Sport: “Players who have gone through important clubs, when they talk about an experience they have had, I like to listen to them, both Paco Alcacer and Raul Albiol or Alberto Moreno.
“They tell you things that you have not yet experienced and that you think you would like to experience.”
There is no doubt that Torres is attracting all the right interest because of his performances and he is at that stage of his career that he needs to join a big club in order to take that next step in his career.
Torres would be a brilliant buy for Chelsea and the Premier League and that £50 million asking price is quite a low one for such a gifted player. It will be interesting to see where he ends up, but if Chelsea fc could get him, he would be a brilliant signing for the club
