Barcelona starlet Pablo Torre has endured an unsteady season since joining the club last summer. Making his debut in the Spanish top flight, the youngster struggled to find consistent game-time.

The Blaugrana acquired Torre from Racing Santander for €5 million plus bonuses. He signed for four seasons with a release clause of €100 million.

The 20-year-old joined the Catalans on the back of an applaudable season for Racing. In 31 games, he scored ten goals, provided ten assists, and secured promotion to the second division for his side.

However, things have not been all sunshine and roses in Catalonia. Torre found himself struggling to rise above the competition and faced minimal faith from the coach.

With minutes for any young prospect crucial for development, Barcelona are considering loaning the Spanish sensation out.

And now, according to AS, Torre to Villarreal on loan is on the cards this summer.

While Villarreal are a stacked side with many great options in their ranks, Torre will be able to acclimatize to Spanish football further and prove himself in a less competitive environment.

Torre has impressed at Barcelona in the scarce game-time he was given. The 20-year-old proved to be a highly nifty and progressive presence, who particularly thrives between the lines.

In his most recent appearance in the friendly against the legendary Andres Iniesta’s Vissel Kobe, Torre recorded two assists as he showed shades of his incredible talent.

The Spaniard has only played 120 minutes in La Liga this season, which is a far cry from what any growing player needs.

At Villarreal, Torre will not face significant ideological cash considering the Yellow Submarine are well renowned for their aggressive football with an emphasis on attacking plays.

They also boast of some elite midfielders like Dani Parejo, who can help tutor and guide Torre into refining his game.

With Barcelona approaching a crucial summer transfer window where departures are essential to move forward, Torre’s potential loan exit would aid Barca financially by lowering the wage bill, while also helping the youngster grow in exposure.
