Manchester United They may have to lean on their rivals to get a good look at a player they’re dying to sign this summer.

The Red Devils have had one hell of a season – particularly in defence, where they have conceded 51 goals so far First League. They have their lowest score in the competition at this point and are in serious danger of missing out Champions League.

Considering they finished second last year it was a sharp drop – especially when they brought in the likes of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and others Cristiano Ronaldo. But they were severely set back by a dysfunctional defense.

Ralf Rangnick is aware of the problems and has already told his bosses at Old Trafford that a new central defender will need to be signed. This has seen the club rekindle interest in Villarreal star Pau Torres, who has had an excellent season.

Having already impressed several teams across Europe – including Manchester City and Tottenham – The Spain international has been exceptional in helping his club reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Along the way, Unai’s men defeated Emery juventus and Bayern Munich and face Liverpool next on an incredibly hard road. But the La Liga team will get no boost from their world-class opponents.

And that’s because their defense has proven wise throughout the competition, conceding just two goals in the knockout stages of the Champions League. However, the encounter with Liverpool will bring a whole new test, with the front line among the most terrible in Europe.

In all, the Reds have scored an exceptional 133 goals, giving Torres perhaps his toughest opponent to date. Players like Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota and newly signed Luis Diaz have the firepower to strike fear into any defender.

With Torres firmly in United’s minds, they will be watching closely how the 25-year-old handles the opportunity and see if he can improve their own problems in defence. It was just last week when Jurgen Klopp’s men embarrassed the Red Devils at Anfield.

While Villarreal go into the clash as huge underdogs, they have already been written off and have proven themselves against all odds as they watch their first-ever Champions League final. United, on the other hand, are looking increasingly unlikely to even take part in this competition next year.
