According to a report from Jorge Picon, Lille are heading into a dead end concerning keeping Leny Yoro, as a result of which, Real Madrid are hoping to reach an agreement for the youngster’s transfer soon.

It is to be noted that Yoro has been a target for Real Madrid for months. With Nacho deciding to leave and uncertainties surrounding David Alaba’s return after his ACL injury, the club prioritised Yoro’s arrival. 

The interest in Yoro is so strong that competitors are starting to give up. In that regard, Liverpool and PSG know Yoro wants to play for Real Madrid, as since learning of Madrid’s interest, Yoro asked his agents to make it a priority. 

As a result, while Liverpool and PSG continue to monitor the situation, they are beginning to accept that Yoro is likely to join Madrid. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have already reached an agreement with Yoro; now, they just need to finalise the deal with Lille, who are in a tough spot.

It is understood that Lille cannot demand a high fee for Yoro because they risk losing him for nothing next year. Their attempts to use other interested clubs to increase the price are not working. 

Despite this, Lille are trying to get as much as they can from the deal. Initial figures of €100, €80, or €60 million are off the table and Madrid will pay a significantly lower amount. 

They understand Lille’s situation but know they have the upper hand. They just need to wait and use Yoro’s desire to join them to their advantage.

Behind the scenes, there is a broader issue that is forcing Lille into a dilemma: either sell Yoro now for a decent fee or risk losing a significant amount of money they desperately need.

Now, it is no secret that Real Madrid want Yoro as their future centre-back and are willing to wait. With all the cards on the table, it is up to Lille to find a middle ground in negotiations. 

The goal is to finalize the transfer soon and avoid dragging it out over the summer. If all goes well, Yoro will fulfil his dream of playing for Real Madrid, becoming a key name in their transfer plans.

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.

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.
