Juventus open talks with Tottenham Hotspur target Pau Torres
Manchester United and Spurs were seemingly ahead in the race to sign the 25-year-old from the Yellow Submarine. But the Italian giants have now opened talks will the player, who has given the “all-clear” for a move to the Allianz Stadium.
The North London side were interested in Torres’ signature a year back as well, but the Spaniard turned down the opportunity. Instead, he opted to stay at the Estadio de la Ceramica as they embarked upon a run to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.
Torres’ decision might have paid off since he guided Villarreal to an unexpected semi-final in the Champions League. The Yellow Submarine beat considerable odds to reach the last four of the European competition.
Juventus are one of the biggest sides in the world but have struggled in recent years. On the other hand, Tottenham appear to be building something special under Antonio Conte.
The allure of the Premier League shines throughout world football as well. England’s first tier boasts some of the best teams in the world. With Spurs’ qualification to the Champions League, the club has considerably strengthened the squad.
Torres is a left-footed centre-back, someone fans have been crying out for. With the signing of Clement Lenglet on loan, we added that particular profile of player to the squad. If the Spaniard were to sign for Tottenham, it would mean another player capable of playing the left centre-back role.
Ben Davies deputized in the position for Conte last season. Although he was decent enough, the Welshman is a full-back by trait. However, signing another left-footed centre-back may open up the 29-year-old to feature more in his natural position.
