Pau Torres insists he remains ‘totally calm’ about his future despite strong links to Manchester United.
Torres is believed to be on Manchester United‘s list of centre-back targets this summer, with the Villarreal defender having attracted interest from a number of leading clubs following his strong showings for the Europa League winners.
The 24-year-old formed part of the Villarreal side that beat the Red Devils in the final of that competition and recent reports have said that talks have been held between the two clubs over a potential deal, with Torres understood to have a release clause of around €60m in his contract.
The defender insists he remains relaxed about the situation despite talk of a potential exit, admitting he is looking forward to the future with Villarreal once Spain’s Euro 2020 campaign reaches its conclusion.
“I have a contract at Villarreal,” he told Goal. “I just won the first title for the club, we have qualified for the Champions League and it is something that excites me a lot.
“Now I’m focused on the Euros. Then the Super Cup and nice things will come, so I’m totally calm.”
Pressed on whether those “nice things” will be with Villarreal, he replied: “Yes.”
Torres was asked if any player can turn down an approach from Real Madrid with the Spanish giants amongst the club’s monitoring his progress, though says he remains happy achieving ‘beautiful things’ with his hometown team at present.
“I live in my home town, very quiet, doing beautiful things and fighting for great things with my hometown team.
“I’m totally calm, right now I am only focused on the European Championship, on Wednesday.”
