Manchester United have perfect player to sweeten Pau Torres negotiations if required

MANCHESTER UNITED remain interested in signing Pau Torres from Villarreal but it's unclear whether they are prepared to pay the cash required to sign the Spanish international...

Manchester United are seemingly yet to decide whether they will firm up their interest in Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres with new manager Erik ten Hag

The Dutchman is also understood to be monitoring the future of his former Ajax player Jurrien Timber, who has also worked his way onto United's summer shortlist 

But the reality of the situation is that United are unlikely to sign two centre-backs this summer, meaning they will have to pick between the options that have made their way onto their shortlist.

Torres is arguably the most established player on their radar given he is a full Spanish international at the age of 25.

He also has Champions League and major tournament experience for both club and country - which would suggest he is ready to make the next step.
