World football’s most anticipated clash at the moment is the face-off between Real Madrid and PSG early next week. The clash on the heavyweights has several delicate confrontations that are worth individual headlines.

Lionel Messi’s return to Spain and Santiago Bernabeu indeed makes one big news. However, Kylian Mbappe facing off against his dream club is another fine detail that cant go unnoticed.

Real Madrid are said to be in pole position to sign Mbappe on a free transfer in June. However, the 23-year-old has so far refused to comment on the topic. When asked about his plans and Real Madrid in particular, Mbappe said,

“Even if I’m free to talk to Real Madrid I won’t out of respect for Paris, the game against Madrid changes a lot of things but I haven’t made my decision yet.” (h/t RMC Sport)

However, he then gave a small hint as to when he would talk about his next club.

“We’ll see what happens after the Madrid tie. Right now I won’t talk to the rival, even if I can.”

PSG are trying to renew the forward’s contract before the summer to recuperate at least part of their investment. It remains to be seen if Mbappe breaks the ice around his future after the clash against Real Madrid.

Now that Nacho is ready to join Al Qadsiah, Real Madrid have decided to ramp up their efforts to sign Lille defender Leny Yoro, reports Jose Felix Diaz via MARCA.

As reported before, Nacho has decided to end his career with the Spanish club as he has agreed to a two-year contract with Al Qadsiah in the Saudi Pro League. With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now have a spot open in their defence and are eager to fill it with Yoro.

It is important to note that Yoro has attracted a lot of interest from other clubs. Paris Saint-Germain have been particularly active in trying to sign him, offering €60 million for the player. 

Although this offer is close to what Lille wants, Yoro isn’t interested in moving to PSG.

What Yoro is looking forward to is joining Real Madrid. While the player and Real Madrid have a verbal agreement, the deal with Lille still needs to be finalised soon.

What about the transfer fee?

Regarding the transfer fee, Real Madrid are hesitant to match PSG’s €60 million offer because Yoro has only one year left on his contract.

Initially, the club planned to wait until June 30 to begin serious negotiations. However, due to the increasing interest from clubs like PSG, Manchester United, and Liverpool, they might need to speed up the process.

With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now has the necessary room to strengthen their defence and Yoro fits the bill. 

Madrid already have Yoro in plans

It must be noted that the club’s management, in accordance with Carlo Ancelotti, is already planning next season’s lineup of centre-backs. 

They expect Rafa Marin to leave, so the defensive lineup for coach Carlo Ancelotti is likely to include Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, David Alaba, and possibly Yoro if they can complete the negotiations successfully.

Real Madrid are focusing on building a strong defence for the upcoming season. They see Yoro as a valuable addition and are working hard to secure his transfer. 

The next steps involve reaching an agreement with Lille and finalizing the transfer details as soon as possible.
