Chelsea have become the latest club to join the chase for Villarreal star Pau Torres.

On Tuesday, El Periódico Mediterráneo reported Manchester United are ‘willing to pay up to €50m’ for the defender.

It was also explained his agents would travel to Manchester this week if the Red Devils can reach an agreement with the La Liga side

Wednesday’s edition of El Periódico Mediterráneo states that Chelsea ‘monitor’ the centre-back, who ‘seduces’ the most ‘glamorous’ teams from the Premier League.

They again relay yesterday’s information about the Old Trafford club, and further add that Erik ten Hag is ‘totally seduced’ by the Spain international’s characteristics. There are other clubs keeping tabs on the 25-year-old.

After naming them, the newspaper says ‘not forgetting Chelsea’ since the west London club are now in the picture to sign the defender, who they see ‘as the replacement’ for players they’re losing.

Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen will leave Stamford Bridge when their contracts expire on June 30th.

The Spaniard has a €60m release clause. The Yellow Submarine ‘could accept’ Torres’ sale [provided the offer is convincing], if he ‘wishes’ for a move.
