Following the signing of Kylian Mbappe, Real Madrid have Alphonso Davies and Leny Yoro at the top of their wishlist for the summer transfer window.

However, the Merengues are facing hurdles in their pursuit of the Bayern Munich left-back and the Lille centre-half.

In case of Yoro, Lille’s asking price in excess of €50 million ins seen as excessive by Real Madrid, while competition from other clubs also complicates issues.

Rivals not giving up

PSG, Manchester United, and Liverpool have all been credited with a strong interest in signing Leny Yoro in the summer.

Despite it becoming clear that the 18-year-old has a preference towards Real Madrid, the aforementioned suitors are not ready to give up on their pursuit of the Frenchman, reports Fabrizio Romano.

As per the report, though, despite the strong interest from the Ligue 1 champions and the two Premier League heavyweights, Yoro continues to see Real Madrid as his favourite destination.

As such, the teenage prodigy is waiting for a decision from the reigning champions of Spain and Europe before making a call on his future.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, they are very keen on signing Yoro but only on their terms. They do not intend to pay over the odds for the 18-year-old, more so considering his contract expires in 2025.

In fact, reports suggest that they have set a spending limit of around €35-40 million for Yoro and do not intend to spend beyond that.

The Merengues, for now, are waiting for a decision from their captain Nacho Fernandez, before making their next move on the Leny Yoro deal.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
