Fabrizio Romano delivers update on Man United link to Pau Torres
Fabrizio Romano reveals that Man United are keeping tabs on Villarreal defender Pau Torres this summer
Manchester United are keeping tabs on Villarreal defender Pau Torres ahead of a possible swoop to sign the Spaniard this summer, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Red Devils are thought to be on the lookout for a number of potential new signings this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to add to his squad ahead of the new campaign.
Manchester United have been linked with a number of potential defensive recruits as Solskjaer considers bringing in a new partner for Harry Maguire at the heart of his side’s back-line.
The likes of Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Villarreal star Torres have all been touted as possible targets for the Premier League outfit.
Now, Italian reporter Romano has delivered a fresh update on Manchester United’s apparent interest in Torres, claiming that the Red Devils are indeed keeping tabs on the 24-year-old – who is reported to have a €65m (£55.8m) release clause in his contract – ahead of a potential move.
Speaking on the Here We Go podcast on 23 June, Romano said: “The release clause of Torres with Villarreal is €65m. Manchester United know about this [release clause].
“He is one of the players on their list along with Varane and [Jules] Kounde. Pau Torres is appreciated [by Manchester United] but they know the clause is €65m.”
Manchester United are looking to bolster their squad as they bid to challenge for the title next season after finishing second and without a trophy last term.
