Pau Torres is in contention to leave Villarreal, and has been linked with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

The defender had a great end to the season with the Spanish club, as they made it to the Champions League semi-final, losing to Liverpool.

His fine displays for the La Liga side ended up receiving attention in England, with the Red Devils and Spurs being named as his two suitors.

La Razón mention the two Premier League sides and add that Spurs could offer Giovani Lo Celso as part of the deal to sign the Spain international. However, it is Erik ten Hag’s side who are said to be in the lead to secure the centre-back’s services.

It’s claimed Manchester United are the ‘great favourite’ to land the 25-year-old. The report adds the Old Trafford club are ‘willing to put’ a €50m bid on the table to take Torres away from Villarreal.

Antonio Conte’s side will have the Lo Celso card to play in this potential transfer battle with United to sign the Villarreal player.
