A move to the Spanish capital could be perfect for the 24-year-old. Sergio Ramos has already announced he will be leaving, and the club are also awaiting a decision from Raphael Varane regarding his future, as he could looking for a move away this summer.
The main stumbling block in signing Pau, 'AS' explains, is his price. Villarreal have no intentions of letting him go cheap and they have no need whatsoever to sell him. In addition, Emery will be counting on him for their 2021/22 campaign.
This same source states that, in order to secure the player's services, Madrid would have to pay around 50 million euros, a figure that the club would be unwilling to pay. RM's priority this summer remains Kylian Mbappe, for whom they will need to conserve a lot of money, therefore they don't intend to throw out money for other players further down their list of priorities.
As a result, Madrid have no other option but to put Pau Torres to one side - at least for now. Their interest for the CB is great, but they will have to wait until the summer of 2022. According to 'AS', Pau Torres himself would look fondly at the opportunity to make the jump to Real Madrid, but in order to do so he will have to wait one more year.
