Tracked by Real Madrid or Manchester United, Pau Torres does not see himself leaving Villarreal, his training club.
For a week, a page has turned to Real Madrid. After sixteen years of good and loyal service, Sergio Ramos and the Madrid club parted ways, after the two parties failed to agree to extend the adventure.
With the Madrid captain gone and perhaps Raphael Varane as well, the Madrid club must now find a replacement. If Eder Militao and Nacho are still present and David Alaba has joined the ranks of Madrid, the Merengue have decided to recruit Pau Torres. The central defender of Villarreal is currently playing Euro 2020 with La Roja where he forms the hinge with Aymeric Laporte.
Winner of the Europa League with the Yellow Submarine and therefore directly qualified for the Champions League, Torres is at a turning point in his career. At 24, he was therefore courted by Real Madrid but also by Manchester United, who were rumored to be the favorite to recover him.
On the eve of the cut-throat match of the Spanish selection for a qualification for the knockout stages of the Euro, the defender confided exclusively to Goal. Despite the effervescence and the prestige of the clubs that follow him, Pau Torres does not intend to set sail and ensures that the beautiful things that will happen will be with the yellow tunic.
“I have a contract at Villarreal, I just won the club’s first title, we qualified for the Champions League and that’s something that excites me a lot. Now I’m focusing on the Euro. Then the European Supercup (against Chelsea) and great things will come, so I’m totally calm. “
Asked if it was possible to say “no” to Real Madrid, the Spanish defender added to the love of his city.
“I live in my hometown, very calm, I do great things and I fight for great things with the team in my hometown. I am totally calm, at the moment I only watch the game of the Euro, Wednesday. “
The courtiers are warned, it will be necessary to come up with solid arguments to convince the player to leave his cocoon.
