In the summer of 2021, Pau Torres was strongly linked with Real Madrid, but in the end he did not move to the Bernabeu. This midfielder admitted that he actually conducted negotiations with Real, but the White Vultures turned to David Alaba.
The Spanish star shared:
“No, I didn’t turn them down. I would never turn down a team like Real Madrid or Barcelona. You can never refuse them.”
“There were negotiations, but in the end Real Madrid had a very good option, which was to recruit Alaba on a free transfer. It’s very difficult to find such a free player.”
“Ultimately, for a transfer to happen, it must depend on many factors. At that time, nothing happened.”
“It would be a dream to win the title with Aston Villa. Now we are focused on this goal, turning Aston Villa into a top club and returning it to its rightful position.”
