Manchester United are reportedly readying an offer for the in-demand Valencia forward Ferran Torres, reports in England say
Torres has established himself as one of the most highly-rated youngsters in European football since breaking onto the top-flight stage with Valencia in 2017.
Although his vast potential truly came to life this term, the coveted 20-year-old winger was starring for Los Ches also last season when he was a driving force of the Mestalla outfit.
Lightning-quick feet and impressive technique, as well as versatility and tactical intelligence, make Torres one of the most exciting up-and-comers in Europe’s top-five leagues.
Although Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, and Liverpool monitor the Spaniard’s progress in La Liga, Manchester United are now looking to swoop in and steal the youngster away.
As per the Sports Mole, the Red Devils are lining up a summer bid for Torres, who would be a much cheaper alternative to the prime target Jadon Sancho.
The Borussia Dortmund starlet would cost Manchester United a fortune since the Bundesliga powerhouse demand something in excess of €100million to renounce the Englishman’s services.
The financial uncertainty caused by the coronavirus crisis is likely to deter United from making such a heavy investment in one player, which increases the chances of them switching attention towards Torres.
Although Torres won’t come cheap, considering the Spanish side hold him in the highest esteem, his price tag is likely to save Manchester United around €50million at least.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to add a top-class forward to his roster since Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata are expected to either leave the club in the summer or play minor roles next season.
