According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid are among the clubs interested in the services of Javi Guerra. The young midfielder currently plies his trade with Valencia’s youth setup and is regarded as one of the most gifted players to come out of the club’s academy in recent years.

Guerra has built a solid reputation in the youth divisions due to his ability to control the ball and distribute possession all around the park. He is also a technical player, who can dribble past players, if necessary.

The 19-year-old made his professional debut with Valencia last season, under the leadership of Jose Bordalas. The player has been involved in Valencia’s senior team training this season, though he has yet to feature under Gennaro Gattuso.

With his current contract at Valencia expiring at the end of the season, there is a possibility Guerra could leave the club in 2023. Real Madrid have already been alerted to his situation and are actively trying to lure him from Valencia on a free transfer before the start of next season.

Real Madrid are not the only club interested in the services of Javi Guerra. The midfielder has been courted by arch-rivals Barcelona as well.

The Catalans are even confident about the pursuit as they appear to have good contacts with the player’s representatives. Guerra’s representative, Integral Advising Football, is contracted with Barcelona players such as Inaki Pena and Ez Abde.

Real Madrid, though, have established first contacts with Javi Guerra over a potential move to Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season.

The club have developed a reputation for their ability to nurture young talents in the recent past, thus making the Santiago Bernabeu an appealing destination for the player.

Valencia are thought to be keen on keeping hold of Guerra. However, they are yet to reach an agreement with the player, who has not yet responded to a contract extension offer.

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.
