TOP STORY: Man United face battle with Napoli for Torres

The Italian newspaper believes Napoli have been tracking the centre-back for some time and that he could be available for around £26 million.

The 24-year-old has been inspirational for the Yellow Submarine this season and has been an integral part of the club’s run to the Europa League final, which takes place in Gdansk on May 26. Villarreal face Manchester United, who are also keen to land the defender. United’s interest could hinge on whether or not they can tempt Raphael Varane to move to Manchester from Real Madrid.
