Chelsea send scouts to watch Manchester United target Pau Torres

Villarreal defender Pau Torres is a wanted man.

The Spanish centre-back has interest from Manchester United and Manchester City, while Chelsea have asked scouts to follow him closely.

That is according to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano.

He adds that Torres has a release clause valid this summer – amounting to €55/60m.

Meanwhile, Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph claims Torres is considered one of the best left-footed centre-backs in Europe. He understands that United will sign at least one centre-back this summer.

With sanctions hanging over Chelsea’s head going into the transfer market, it remains to be seen how active they will be when it comes to recruiting players.
