Manchester United could make a move for Villarreal defender Pau Torres during the final weeks of the summer transfer window.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on signing a new centre-back this summer, who can compete for a starting role in the forthcoming campaign.
RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano had recently emerged as an option, but a deal appears unlikely with the defender having just extended his contract.
According to Manchester Evening News, Torres has now been identified as the alternative target and the club could make a move in the coming weeks.
The Spain international is a key member of the Yellow Submarines and he has caught the eye of numerous clubs including Manchester City this summer.
He currently has a release clause worth £45.6m on his contract and it remains to be seen whether the Red Devils are willing to activate the option.
