‘He’s Better Than Laporte’ ‘Flaws Would Be Severely Exposed In The Prem’ Fans React As City Scout 46M Rated La Liga Star

Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been scouting Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres this season, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Supporters on Twitter have had a mixed reaction to City’s interest in Torres, with many questioning why the Premier League champions are looking to sign another centre-half:


With four senior centre-backs already at the club in Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, John Stones and Nathan Ake, there isn’t any real need to reinforce that area of the pitch.

Torres’s release clause may make him an attractive signing but, once a deal for Erling Haaland has been finalised, City’s main focus for the summer transfer window should be on finding a replacement for Fernandinho, as well as recruiting a new fullback.
