Manchester United fans encourage board to make move and sign impressive £55 million Spanish defender
Manchester United fans are encouraging boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to land Pau Torres after his brilliant Europa League final performance.
Torres, 24, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer and has a £55million release clause in his contract after a stunning season with the Spanish side.
It is no secret that Solskjaer is in the market for a new central defender to play alongside Harry Maguire next season, as Victor Lindelof is decent, but he is not the right kind of partner for Maguire.
And amid the speculation that Torres is on the shopping list of the Red Devils, supporters believe Torres would be the answer to their defensive problems following his commanding performance.
One wrote: “Pau Torres is exactly what we need.”
Another added: “Pau Torres please. Do the deal before the summer madness.”
A third wrote: “If that was Pau Torres’ audition, then I think he passed.
There is no doubt that Torres is a very classy defender that should be at one of the big clubs and after seeing his performance in that Europe League final, there will be more clubs interested in the summer.
It will be very interesting to see just who United do manage to sign in the coming window as they need to revamp key areas of the pitch if they are going to win back that Premier League and Champions League titles that they so dearly want.
But we do agree with the fans as Torres would be a brilliant signing for the club.
