Pau Torres has had yet another stunning season at the heart of a Villarreal side that has once again been beating the odds. Whether it's his goals in the Champions League and keeping Robert Lewandowski at bay, or whether it's being part of a defence that has let in only 34 goals in 35 games in La Liga, the defender is one for the now and the future.
Manchester United also have their own defensive issue with the obvious being pointed towards the captain, Harry Maguire. Raphael Varane has also had a tough settling in season, and while Victor Lindelof has been better, he and Eric Bailly still bring more doubts than answers to the table.
Familiar in a back three and with the modern traits running through him like his ball control and passing ability, Torres would fit in perfectly under Erik ten Hag. He is, however, likely to cost north of £80m according to reports in Spain.
