Reliable transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed two players that will be happy to join Manchester United this summer.

The Red Devils are looking to back new boss Erik ten Hag as the club targets a first Premier League title since 2013. 

Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong appears to be Ten Hag’s priority target this summer but the Red Devils are still chasing other deals.

Manchester United could lose three defenders this summer, with Eric Bailly, Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones all facing uncertain futures at Old Trafford.

It seems Manchester United would have no issues replacing these departing defenders.

According to the reliable Fabrizio Romano, Ajax defender Jurrien Timber and Villarreal defender Pau Torres would be happy to join Manchester United this summer.

Speaking to The United Stand, Fabrizio Romano said: “Both players [Pau Torres & Timber] would be happy to join [Manchester United].”

Fabrizio Romano then added: “I see Pau Torres playing in the Premier League next season because he wants the move and has good chances to move.

“Timber is waiting for Manchester United to update him on the situation with Ajax.”

Torres was recently asked about his future at Villarreal.

And he said: ”I have the peace of mind of being where they want me, where I have a valid contract and a renewal offer.

“The future will tell what happens but I am very calm, I do not look further and it is time to disconnect.

“It has been two years very good at Villarreal, we have competed with the best at European level which is what every player wants.

“And if, in addition, you do it in your town’s team, it’s bigger.”

And he then added: “It’s something I’ve always talked about with the president, that different situations could arise.

“The club loves me and I am very grateful. I know that I can stay here for many more years because the affection is mutual.

“We’ll see what we decide.”
