Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) mini-boss Kylian Mbappe has asked the club to sign former Manchester United target Pau Torres, as reported by Spanish outlet AS.
The Villarreal centre-back was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United last summer.
According to reports, the Red Devils have identified the 26-year-old as their main defensive target.
According to The Mirror, the move fell apart after Erik ten Hag stepped in and convinced Manchester United to go after Ajax ace Lisandro Martinez instead.
According to AS, Kylian Mbappe wants PSG to bring in the former Manchester United target this season.
It has been claimed the 24-year-old will have a big role in a Parisian deal next summer.
Kylian Mbappe reportedly wants to bring in young players, who can not only improve the squad but also help his game.
Pau Torres, who has the knack for delivering perfect long balls from deep, has the quality to tick both boxes.
Pau Torres has a €60 million release clause in his contract at Villarreal, and it is believed that he wants to leave the La Liga club this summer.
Per 90 minutes, Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in his services.
It will be interesting to see if Kylian Mbappe’s intervention prompts the former Manchester United target to reject another suitor in favor of the Parisian.
The Villarreal graduate has played 160 games for the senior team in all competitions, registering 11 goals and five assists.
