Villarreal defender Pau Torres appears to be leaving the Spanish club this summer after speculation of whether he’d go. Still, the defender opted to stay with UEFA Champions League football this past season.
However, this summer, it seems the 25-year-old is ready for the next challenge of his career. Tottenham Hotspur are keen on adding Torres to improve their backline this summer as they prepare for the possibility of UEFA Champions League football next season.
Despite Spurs having an interest, other clubs are monitoring The Yellow Submarine defender, but some will be dropping out of the race. FC Barcelona is one team that won’t be itching to make a deal for Torres.
Mundo Deportivo reports that FC Barcelona management is not considering him today because he is expensive. The La Liga side had the opportunity to sign the Villarreal center-back in 2018 for only €25 million in 2018. But now Torres is way off the Catalan club’s financial budget.
Transfermarkt puts the Spain international’s transfer value at £45-million.
This deal is doable because we just might foist Lo Noshow on them in exchange (plus some money). We need wing backs but a left sided CB is also necessary – we just have Davies there, who has done well under Conte, but if he gets injured, we’re stuffed.
Would rather they spend £45m on a right sided wing back to be honest.
