Tue 23 November 2021 | 8:59

The Spanish star has been able to attract a lot of attention by shining in recent seasons.

Villarreal

star Pau Torres has commented on the rejection of

Tottenham

's offer to join the team.

Torres is known as one of the most talented defenders in the world, and with his good performance, he was able to reach the main team from the age group of the club, and he also participated in the

Spanish national team

in Euro 2020 and the Olympics. Over the summer, Torres received a €60 million offer from Tottenham but preferred to turn it down and stay at the club. Now Torres has stated his reasons for not participating in the Premier League.

“The pull of playing the Champions League with the team from my town was bigger,”

  Torres said.

“I was clear from the start. This is only the fourth time Villarreal reached the Champions League, which shows how hard it is and it was a dream to play the competition with my lifelong club.

“The president didn’t put pressure on me, even though they could make a lot of money. He always said ‘the decision’s yours,’ that he’d respect it. I appreciate that.”

He added:

“What I could experience with the club was unrepeatable.

“I’m comfortable in my town, with my people close, and the group we have and the people we signed – [Arnaut] Danjuma, Boulaye [Dia], Gerard [Moreno] renewed … – meant we had a team to do great things.

“I’m enjoying it. It’s a special year, the group is very close, that’s why I stayed.”
