Man Utd and Real Madrid want Leny Yoro sign a deal ‘in principle’

Despite being just 18 years old, Yoro has become an integral part of Lille’s offense since making his debut in 2022. He has entered the last year of his current contract and has shown little interest in signing a new one, so the French club is likely to move him this summer.







Everyone knows that Real Madrid is the player’s dream club. Despite the continued interest from other teams, United has formally approached them.

According to Sky Sports, Lille has accepted a bid of approximately €50 million (£42.3 million) for Yoro. Madrid, who were hoping to get Yoro for a bargain, has not made a counteroffer; according to FootMercato, the Bernabeu’s highest offer is €20 million (£17 million).Fabrizio Romano reports that Lille is reportedly trying to persuade Yoro to reconsider his move to Manchester and instead examine the best option for them. No trade will proceed without the player’s approval, though, so it appears he is waiting for Madrid to respond.

United released Raphael Varane last month, but they are still looking to add a central defender for the next 2024–25 season. Matthijs de Ligt’s personal terms are still up in the air as talks with Bayern Munich over a possible sale price continue; Everton has turned down two bids for Jarrad Branthwaite.

Last season, manager Erik ten Hag had a major issue in the center of defense due to a series of injuries that caused a lack of continuity. With three distinct absences, Lisandro Martinez, Harry Maguire, and Victor Lindelof all missed significant portions of the year. As the season came to a close, Casemiro found himself frequently used as a substitute center defender.
