Pau Torres explains why he rejected Tottenham transfer

    Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres has confessed that the allure of playing Champions League football with his hometown side was behind his decision to reject Tottenham in the summer.

    Spurs lodged a bid of around €60m (£50m) for the Spaniard as part of their aggressive search for a new defender. They were knocked back and also failed with a bid to sign Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, eventually settling on Cristian Romero from Atalanta instead.

    The belief is that Spurs tabled an offer which would have seen Torres quadruple his weekly earnings, but despite that proposal, the 24-year-old admits he had unfinished business with Villarreal.

    “The pull of playing the Champions League with the team from my town was bigger,” he told The Guardian. “I was clear from the start.

    “This is only the fourth time Villarreal reached the Champions League, which shows how hard it is and it was a dream to play the competition with my lifelong club.
