£65 million Spaniard ‘totally calm’ with reports Chelsea are looking to wrap up five-year deal

Chelsea target Pau Torres remains “totally calm” as transfer talk rages around him.

Torres, 24, has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer and has a £55million release clause in his contract after a stunning season with the Spanish side.

It is no secret that Thomas Tuchel is in the market for a new central defender to add to his squad as a more long-term replacement for the ageing Thiago Silva, who may leave the club at the end of next season

Torres is aware of the interest he is generating, but is happy in his current surroundings – having helped his hometown club to Europa League glory in 2021 – and is not about to be dragged into a debate regarding his future.

Asked by Goal about the United and Madrid speculation, Torres said: “I have a contract at Villarreal, I just won the first title for the club, we have qualified for the Champions League and it is something that excites me a lot.

“Now I’m focused on the Euros. Then the Super Cup and nice things will come, so I’m totally calm.”

Pressed on whether those “nice things” will be taken in with Villarreal, he added: “Yes.”

Torres went on to say when asked if anyone can turn down Real: “I live in my home town, very quiet, doing beautiful things and fighting for great things with my hometown team.

“I’m totally calm, right now I am only focused on the European Championship, on Wednesday (when Spain will take on Slovakia).”


If Chelsea do actually come calling, how could he turn down a move to Stamford Bridge?
