Corresponding brandManchester United are now ready to spend £43million to bring Manchester City and Tottenham target Pau Torres to the Premier League.
What’s the matter?
Well, that would be quite a commitment for Erik ten Hag.
Torres nearly joined Tottenham in 2021 despite opting to stay with his youth side Villarreal after they qualified for the Champions League.
It proved a wise move as Unai Emery impressively led the Yellow Submarine to the semi-finals, where they were beaten by Liverpool.
Now Manchester United and Manchester City have joined the race with Spurs still keen on signing the Spain international.
brand believe the Red Devils are willing to shell out up to £43m for Torres and Ten Hag are desperate to sign the 25-year-old at all costs.
It comes after Tottenham spied on the centre-back during Villarreal’s Champions League semi-final defeat by Liverpool.
Interestingly, Torres is said to have included a £50m release clause in his contract, which Manchester United are not far off with a £43m offer in the pipeline.
Tottenham must not lose to Manchester United or Manchester City
In our view it would be quite embarrassing for Spurs to miss Torres after doing so much groundwork for the defender.
As mentioned, Tottenham pursued the Spaniard in 2021 shortly after Fabio Paratici arrived as director of football to support Nuno Espirito Santo.
It has even been said that Spurs are confident of securing his signature so losing now would be a real blow.
Antonio Conte has done a remarkable job of securing Champions League football for next season and with Tottenham’s centre-back department lacking in quality, Torres is needed at Hotspur Way.
Keep an eye on this saga because anything could happen this summer.
