Man Utd willing to compete with Real Madrid for Villarreal defender Pau Torres

Manchester United must compete with Real Madrid if they want to sign Villarreal defender Pau Torres.

AS says United are willing to launch a transfer bid for Torres.

But they face competition from Real Madrid for the defender's signature.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to bring in a new centre-back this summer as a long-term partner for Harry Maguire.

And according to AS, the Red Devils may make an official bid in the coming weeks.

Torres, 24, enjoyed a fine season with boyhood club Villarreal and capped it off by lifting the Europa League, beating United in a marathon penalty shootout.

He has been with the club since 2002, aged just five, and has racked up 88 first-team appearances, earning himself a starting spot for Spain at Euro 2020.
