After weeks of impasse, Real Madrid appear to be making some progress in their pursuit of Leny Yoro.

The LOSC Lille starlet has been identified as the ideal defensive reinforcement for Real Madrid, as they look to find a long-term replacement for Nacho Fernandez.

While Real Madrid were eyeing a move for Yoro for a while, the club were not able to find an agreement with Lille, who were holding out for a high valuation for the defender.

However, recent reports suggest Lille could be willing to lower their price tag for Yoro, knowing they could run the risk of seeing the player for free next summer.

Initially apart in their valuation of the player, with Real Madrid aiming for around €40 million and Lille seeking closer to €50 million, both parties are reportedly open to bridging the gap with add-ons and performance-related variables.

Earlier today, it was reported that Real Madrid have aside a budget of around €90 million for the pursuit of Yoro and Alphonso Davies.

Signing Yoro for somewhere around €40-50 million should not bother Real Madrid, especially considering the player’s potential and what he can offer to the table.

The club’s technical staff are already planning for Yoro’s integration alongside established names like Antonio Rudiger, Eder Militao, and David Alaba. They view him as a cornerstone for the future.

However, the deal is far from being done and the two clubs must still dole out the final details before Leny Yoro can make the move to Santiago Bernabeu.

Once the Yoro deal is done, Real Madrid can focus on their next defensive target in the form of Alphonso Davies, who appears likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer.

Real Madrid star presented with golden opportunity to seal Ballon d’Or triumph

With the Euro and Copa America finals approaching, the period for Ballon d’Or 2024 consideration is about to close.

These final two matches represent the last opportunities for frontrunners of the individual award to make a significant impact.

Given their dominant domestic seasons, Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Jr. are top contenders for the award. However, Vinicius’ early exit with Brazil widens the field of candidates.

Bellingham’s golden opportunity

Now, Jude Bellingham has a golden opportunity to secure the Ballon d’Or if he leads his team to victory in the Euros.

Taking on Spain in the finals, a victory would ensure that the Champions League winner is awarded a first-place position on the Ballon d’Or podium.

His impressive stats at the Euros coupled with his two match-winning goals strengthen his chances of achieving victory. And a triumph on such a grand stage would cap off a stellar season, making a strong case for his candidacy.

However, if Spain clinch the title in the final, the competition for the Ballon d’Or becomes much more open.

Given the Ballon d’Or’s tradition of placing significant importance on performances in international tournaments, the prospect of a Spanish player winning the award increases considerably if Spain wins the final.

In that case, Rodri stands as one of the frontrunners. Having won the Premier League with Manchester City and proving himself one of Spain’s most crucial performers in midfield, he would be a legitimate candidate.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid’s very own Dani Carvajal also would be a realistic option. He contributed considerably to Los Blancos’ trophies and scored the opener in the UEFA Champions League final.

The Euro final is pivotal for Bellingham’s Ballon d’Or prospects. Winning and performing well could secure the award for him. Finalists will be announced on September 4, with the grand ceremony set to take place on October 28.
