Manchester City are interested in signing Pau Torres from Villarreal in the summer transfer window, according to 90min. Premier League champions City have reportedly registered their interest in the 25-year-old Spain international central defender and are keen on bringing him to the Etihad Stadium, with manager Pep Guardiola a big fan.
Torres has been on the books of Villarreal since 2002 and has come through the club’s youth academy to establish himself in the first team. The 25-year-old is one of the better central defenders in Spain and has played 19 times already for the first team.
City won the Premier League title last season and also reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. Villarreal ended up seventh in the La Liga standings with 59 points from 38 matches.
