Pau Torres (Vila-real, 1997) is experiencing his irruption in the Submarine very naturally. The boy of the house is right now one of the great discoveries, although already He has been showing himself for two years as one of the best centrals in the League. Pau made his debut with Villarreal at the age of 19. The defender made his debut in the club of his entire life and took advantage of the blind faith that Javier Calleja had in him.
Pau has already demonstrated his qualities, such as great vision of the game, the quality with the ball at the feet, the aerial game, the ball exit and the tranquility. On debit, some say that he lacks a point of aggressiveness and character on the field, something that he has been working on for a long time to improve.
In League, with only 23 years, he already has 48 games and two goals, to which are added the 41 games he played on loan with Malaga in a fruitful year in the Second Division. All this has made him reach the National Team, becoming in a very short time the best companion and partner of Sergio Ramos.
Pau grows by leaps and bounds and does it under the lap and the approval of two defenses already veterans. Apart from Ramos, at Villarreal he is maturing together with Raúl Albiol, who makes your day to day easier. Albiol sees in Pau a boy with “brutal potential”. At Villarreal they celebrate that he has the Valencian as godfather. And it is that Albiol himself recognizes that “for Pau it is a blessing to have Sergio Ramos next to him; It is very good that he can grow and learn from a defender who is out of competition “. Albiol knows Ramos well, since he has been one of the centrals who has played the most alongside the captain in La Roja.
The trajectory of Ramos and Pau, the centrals of the national team right nowIt is very similar, since they debuted very young in the team of their lives. Both were also precocious when arriving at the national team. Now, there are differences in the game between the two centrals, but that has made them more complementary. Pau is already asked for excellence, something that happens by taking a step forward in aggressiveness and strength, something that Ramos has plenty of.
Regarding the future, Pau has a contract for four more seasons with Villarreal, with a clause of 50 million that can reach 70. For a year, he has been receiving calls of the greats of the Premier. Every season that he wears yellow, Villarreal celebrates it. But in the Submarine they are aware that at this rate it will not be easy to retain him. Just what He happened to Ramos at Sevilla.
