Torres has shone for Villarreal and looks like he could soon earn a move to a bigger club, with the Red Devils undoubtedly in need of more options at the back.

It was recently claimed by ESPN, via the Metro, that Torres could leave Villarreal for around £43million this summer, which could end up being a bargain if he continues to develop as he has.

Real Madrid could also do with a signing like Torres, with the club sweating over the future of both Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
