Villarreal defender Pau Torres is very much liked by Real Madrid executives and is seen as a long-term replacement for Ramos, regardless of whether the latter leaves the club now or later.
The 23-year-old’s performances for Villarreal have been excellent and, at the same time, he has formed a very good partnership with Ramos at the center of the Spanish national team defense.
Villarreal have imposed a 50 million euro clause on Torres, but this figure can be discussed due to the good relations between the two clubs, according to Spanish media.
Real Madrid is also close to a deal with Bayern Munich defender David Alaba, whom they can bring for free, as his contract with the German club in the summer ends.
For the Austrian, it is said that Madrid defeated Barcelona in the race, but for Torres there will be competition from Arsenal.
