VILLARREAL defender Pau Torres has rubbished speculation he is on the verge of leaving the club amid rumours he is close to joining Manchester United.

The 25-year-old has been heavily linked with a switch to Old Trafford in the summer with new boss Erik ten Hag believed to be a huge admirer.

According to The Manchester Evening News, club chiefs have internally discussed the Spaniard as a transfer target with Ten Hag.

It is claimed the 2021 Europa League winner was shortlisted as an option last year but the club turned to Raphael Varane from Real Madrid instead.

Reports have stated that the Red Devils are open to triggering Torres' £51million release.

But the centre-back has since broken his silence regarding his future as he stated that he has received no approach from United or any other potential suitor.
