Man Utd target Torres makes “important club” admission after private discussions

Manchester United transfer target Pau Torres has opened up on his plans for the future – and admitted he wants to experience life at an “important club”.

Villarreal star Torres, 24, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford to partner Harry Maguire at centre-back.

He has been in impressive form to help lead Unai Emery’s side to the Europa League semi-finals and put him on United’s radar.

But he did little to pour cold water on transfer speculation by admitting he has an itch to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world.

And he revealed he has privately consulted team-mates Paco Alcacer, Raul Albiol, formerly of Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively, as well as ex-Liverpool ace Alberto Moreno about their experiences.

Torres told Sport: ”Players who have gone through important clubs, when they talk about an experience they have had, I like to listen to them, both Paco Alcácer and Raúl Albiol or Alberto Moreno.

“They tell you things that you have not yet experienced and that you think you would like to experience.”

Despite his admission over “important clubs”, Torres insists he is still happy at Villarreal and taking pride in praise of his performances.

He said: "It is a pride to see that your work is reflected in this type of thing that is spoken, but I face it with great tranquility, I am in a great club like Villarreal and from the tranquility I work every day.

"I'm not thinking about that either, there is still a lot ahead of me and my short-term goals are the European semi-final and then to be available for the national team.

"Right now I have a contract (until 2024) and I know that I still have room for improvement. I know that I am in a club where they will treat me well, I will not lack anything and that is very important to me.”
