Despite reports suggesting Real Madrid’s transfer business for the summer might be wrapped up after the arrival of Joselu, the club went out and signed Arda Guler from Fenerbahce, beating Barcelona to his capture.

The transfer business might still not be done as Kylian Mbappe continues to remain on the agenda.

And, now another name seems to have been added to the list as journalist Adrian Sanchez claims that Real Madrid have made an approach to the entourage of Real Valladolid right-back Ivan Fresneda, who interestingly is also a target for Barcelona.

Real Madrid have Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez as their options for the right-back slot, with Nacho also an option. Alvaro Odriozola is also available at Carlo Ancelotti’s disposal, although he is on his way out, with talks ongoing with Real Sociedad over a transfer.

Considering that both Carvajal and Vazquez are in their thirties and Nacho is not a natural, it makes sense for Real Madrid to start preparing for the future and someone like Fresneda would be a good fit given his age and potential.

The 18-year-old enjoyed an impressive 2022/23 campaign, with his performance against Vinicius Jr particularly catching the eye.

Barcelona have been making moves for Fresneda, who has a release clause worth €20 million in his contract.

But, Real Madrid, too, appear to have taken an interest in the 18-year-old Spaniard and have made contact with his entourage to discuss the possibility of a transfer.

Only time will tell if the approach from the Spanish capital club turns into anything concrete in the coming days or not.

How Manchester United’s pursuit of Dutch star could benefit Real Madrid

The highly anticipated transfer of Leny Yoro to Real Madrid has encountered an unexpected obstacle, with Manchester United’s surprise entry into the race. 

The Red Devils have successfully negotiated a substantial €50 million+ bid with Lille, leaving Real Madrid’s chances hanging by a thread. 

This means the only factor still in favour of Real Madrid is Yoro’s strong desire to wear the iconic white shirt, a dream he has harboured for a long time.

As things stand, Real Madrid face significant hurdles. For once, Lille are exerting pressure on the player to accept Manchester United’s offer, given its considerable value. 

On the other hand, Real Madrid are hesitant to match this figure, creating a stalemate. Additionally, Manchester United are eager to secure a top-notch defender, especially with the departure of Raphael Varane, a former Real Madrid player. 

This sense of urgency is driving United’s pursuit of Yoro, making them a formidable competitor in the transfer race.

A glimmer of hope for Real Madrid

As it turns out, Manchester United are also considering Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt as a priority target. De Ligt has given his nod to the move and has instructed his representatives to disregard other offers. 

This development provides Real Madrid with a much-needed advantage in the pursuit of Yoro, as United’s focus is divided between two top defenders.

While Manchester United have made progress in negotiations with both De Ligt and Yoro, it is unlikely that they will recruit both players. 

Given De Ligt’s readiness to make an immediate move, Manchester United are expected to prioritize his transfer, leaving Real Madrid as the sole contender for Yoro’s signature. 

This twist in the tale gives Real Madrid a glimmer of hope, as they can now focus their efforts on convincing Yoro to join their ranks.

Yoro’s dilemma: To wait for Madrid or join United

Yoro’s preference is to join Real Madrid, but the club has yet to indicate its willingness to match Lille’s accepted fee from Manchester United.

This has led the Ligue 1 club to favour a transfer deal with the Premier League club. 

If Yoro is to make a move this summer, he faces a difficult decision: either wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid for free, which Lille are unlikely to accept, or agree to a transfer to Manchester United, which would benefit the French club.

The outcome of Yoro’s transfer now hangs precariously in the balance. Real Madrid’s reluctance to match Manchester United’s offer and Yoro’s personal preference for the Spanish giants are the key factors in this high-stakes transfer drama. 

Will Yoro choose to wait for his dream move to Real Madrid or opt for a switch to Manchester United? Only time will tell. 

In the end, Yoro’s transfer will have significant implications for all parties involved. Real Madrid’s hopes of landing their top target hang in the balance, while Manchester United’s urgency to recruit a top defender has thrown a spanner in the works. 

Lille, too, are eager to cash in on their prized asset, and Yoro’s decision will determine the fate of his transfer.

But with United going after De Ligt, it could end up playing into the hands of Real Madrid, helping them land their top target to replace Nacho.
