MANCHESTER UNITED fans are encouraging boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to land Pau Torres after his brilliant Europa League final performance.
The Spanish centre-back was at the forefront of Villarreal's famous penalty win over the Red Devils in Gdansk.
Torres, 24, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer and has a £55million release clause in his contract.
Solskjaer is in the market for a new central defender to play alongside Harry Maguire.
And supporters believe Torres would be the answer to their defensive problems following his commanding performance.
One wrote: "Pau Torres is exactly what we need."
Another added: "Pau Torres please. Do the deal before the summer madness."
A third wrote: "If that was Pau Torres' audition, then I think he passed."
A fourth said: "Pau Torres was unreal, Man Utd should cop him ASAP."
Torres has come through the ranks at Villarreal and has been called up to the Spain Euro 2020 squad.
United legend Gary Neville believes a new central defender is integral if the club have ambitions of winning the title.
