Manchester United set to hijack Liverpool move for Ferran Torres

Manchester United are reportedly weighing up a move for Valencia midfielder Ferran Torres.

The report claims that the Spaniard could be set to leave Valencia after his relationship with chairman Peter Lim deteriorated, but United would have to fend off interest from Manchester City and Liverpool for Torres’s signature.

The Spaniard has impressed for Albert Celades’s side during the 2019-20 campaign, registering six goals and seven assists across all competitions.

Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho is rumoured to be United’s number one target heading into the summer transfer window, but the Red Devils are supposedly making contingency plans should Dortmund’s asking price for the Englishman prove too much.

According to Fichajes, Torres’s agent has been in contact with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side over a proposed summer move for the 20-year-old, who only has one year left to run on his current deal at the Mestalla Stadium.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer’s side are reportedly on the verge of sealing a deal for Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish
