Manchester United are now interested in signing £43 million rated defender to improve back-line
Reports have now claimed that Manchester United are interested in signing the £43 million rated Pau Torres.
Manchester United are in the headlines on a daily basis with constant reports that the club are talking to possible targets about a summer move to Old Trafford, especially as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows that he needs to improve this defence.
The Red Devils back-line may have improved since the coronavirus stopped football, but they have already shipped too many goals in the Premier League this season, and Solskjaer knows that he needs to sign a few players that will come in, and improve the back-line enough for a Premier League challenge, with Torres on the shopping list.
The 23-year-old defender has been outstanding for Villarreal after returning from an impressive loan stint with Malaga, and United were considering a January swoop for the Spanish centre-back before deciding not to sign anybody.
According to the TIMES, Manchester United have joined the likes of Arsenal in the chase for the defender and may be ready to pay the money it would take to seal a transfer deal.
Torres, 23, has a £43million release clause in his new contract and the Villarreal starlet recently hinted at a potential move to the Premier League by revealing that he’s been learning English to pass the time amid the coronavirus lockdown.
United definitely need to improve this back-line in the summer and for £43 million, Torres could be a very decent signing for the club.
