INSIDER: Man Utd ahead of Real Madrid for Pau Torres; deal deadline set

Manchester United have intensified their interest in Villarreal defender Pau Torres in the last 48 hours.

Cadena SER says Real Madrid are keen on Torres, who is under contract until 2024 with Villarreal. But the Spanish giants have been left behind in the transfer race by United.

According to journalist Anton Meana, United have accelerated negotiations in recent days.

"They have made good progress," confided an insider close to the talks.

United would like to complete the operation before the Euros, which will start on June 11.
