Man Utd are one of several clubs eyeing Pau Torres and Villarreal president Fernando Roig has challenged them to pay his release clause if they want him


Villarreal president Fernando Roig is ready to sanction Pau Torres' exit but only if one of his suitors pays his €65m (£56m) release clause.

The centre-half has enjoyed a rapid rise with his performances attracting interest from around Europe.

Torres has just helped Villarreal claim their first ever European title courtesy of their Europa League win over Manchester United.

The Red Devils are one of the teams interested in the 24-year-old with a defender on their summer wish list.

Roig is willing to let Torres move on but only if the player himself wants to leave and his price tag is met.

He told El Transistor : "If they arrive with the money and the player wants to move, but there must be an agreement between all three parties."


Torres has been integral for the Yellow Submarine and said before the final that his "life was linked to the club".

He has also been selected in Luis Enrique's Spanish squad for this summer's European Championships, which he insists remains his focus.

Torres said: "For now I only think as a player dressed in yellow, I see my life linked to this club. For now I have a contract here [until June 2024] and I do not see beyond this final or what may come this summer.

"God willing I can be in the Euros. I only want the first title for my club, for my people, and then to represent Spain in a tournament as big as this."

The defender has also suggested he would like to try something new at some point in his career.

Several of his team-mates are well travelled and he confessed he was intrigued by their experiences.

He has 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 Alcacer and Raul Albiol or Alberto Moreno.

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

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer conceded after United's final loss to Villarreal that his side were short in certain areas.

The Red Devils are expected to dip into the market in the coming months to bolster their ranks.

"We've done as well as anyone could imagine," Solskjaer said during his post-game news conference. "We need to do better, we need to work better, harder, cleverer.

"Two or three players to strengthen the starting XI is important for us to go even further. I'm sure our contenders, challengers will also want to improve as well."
