Manchester United have entered talks with Villarreal for defender Pau Torres.
United have seen Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof form a solid, but slightly inconsistent partnership at the back this term.
And, for that reason, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bring in a new defender.
Eric Bailly could be allowed to leave, with the Ivorian international unhappy about his lack of playing time at Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to not trust Tuanzebe, with the defender making just six Premier League appearances this term.
That have led to links to Villarreal defender Torres being on the rise.
And AS reports has it that United have held an ‘informal consultation’ about a possible deal for the 24-year-old at the end of the season.
Torres would roughly coast Manchester United £42million according to his release clause, a fee that will rise in the last 15 days of the transfer window.
