The Red Devils are considering Villarreal defender as one of their transfer targets.
After being priced out of a move for Sevilla’sJules Kounde
have been eyeing new defenders as their potential transfer targets. Kounde has a £68m release clause atSevilla
and Manchester United officials are not willing to pay such a price for a defender. According to reports fromEurosport
, the Red Devils are keen to sign Villarreal’sPau Torres
as their new center-back. The player is affordable for the English club as his exit clause has been placed at £43m. Torres has established himself as a key player for Unai Emery’s team in their current campaign and he could be part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans to reinforce his team’s backline. The 24-year old has appeared in 24 league matches forVillareal
in the current season as they sit sixth in LaLiga with 37 points.
