According to a recent report from Marca, Manchester City are in a good position to block the signing of Villarreal defender Pau Torres.
The 24-year-old refused to move to Tottenham Hotspur over the summer with Pep Guardiola reportedly having been tracking Torres for some time.
Villarreal come after a good performance against Manchester United in the Champions League and in that match, Torres proved once again why he is a force to be reckoned with. Unfortunately, if he wants to take the next step in his career, moving to the Premier League might be exactly the right way to do it.
The Spanish side aren’t doing much in La Liga right now and it wouldn’t be too surprising to see City making a move already in the January transfer window if Guardiola believed it would help their title ambitions.
