Manchester United hold concrete talks over a summer deal for Villarreal's Pau Torres, according to a report.

Manchester United reportedly have a strong interest in Pau Torres and are holding concrete talks over a potential deal for the Villarreal defender this summer.

The Red Devils are said to be determined to bring a new centre-back to the club in the upcoming market, and Torres continues to be strongly linked with a switch to Old Trafford.

The 24-year-old, who has helped his side reach the semi-finals of the Europa League, recently revealed that he wants to represent an 'important club' in the future.

According to SportItalia, there is a strong interest from the 20-time English champions in the Spain international, who is currently the subject of concrete discussions.

Torres - also believed to be a target for Real Madrid - has a €65m (£56m) release clause in his current deal with Unai Emery's side.

The defender has scored three times in 39 outings for the Yellow Submarine this term.
