Pau Torres, who continues to be linked with Manchester United and Real Madrid, says that he is "totally calm" amid the speculation surrounding his future.

Pau Torres has said that he is "totally calm" amid the speculation surrounding his future and is planning to start the 2021-22 campaign at Villarreal.

The 24-year-old excelled for the Yellow Submarine last season and is believed to be a target for both Manchester United and Real Madrid during this summer's transfer window.

However, the centre-back, who is currently representing Spain at Euro 2020, has revealed that he is more than comfortable at Villarreal and wants to start next season with the Europa League winners.

"Now I'm focused on the Euros. Then the Super Cup and nice things will come, so I'm totally calm," Torres told Goal before claiming that the "nice things" in question would happen with Villarreal.

"I live in my home town, very quiet, doing beautiful things and fighting for great things with my hometown team. I'm totally calm, right now I am only focused on the European Championship, on Wednesday."

Torres, who has made 87 appearances for his current side since debuting in 2017, is believed to have a £50m release clause in his contract with Unai Emery's team.
