Real Madrid lead PSG in race for ‘future Varane’, will table €30 million+ offer soon

Published

on

As is usually the norm at Real Madrid, the club is never content with sitting idle in the transfer market and once again, they are expected to be major players in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Fortifications in attack are already taken for granted, with Kylian Mbappe and Endrick all set to join Real Madrid this summer.

But new faces in the defensive line are also not ruled out, especially with Real Madrid maintaining their heavy interest in Lille’s young centre-back prodigy, Leny Yoro.

Real Madrid see Yoro as the ‘future Varane’

Indeed, according to Santi Aouna Real Madrid views Leny Yoro as the ‘future Raphael Varane’ and are prepared to offer Lille an initial proposal of €30 million + bonuses.

With the youngster hailed for his incredible positioning and passing qualities, the Merengues are keen on acquiring his services and replicating the success they found with Varane.

Lille anticipates a much steeper transfer fee and intends to play on the competition to raise prices.

Even so, Real Madrid have asked Leny to stay calm, be patient, and wait for them to find an agreement with Lille.

Despite competition from other clubs and PSG’s readiness to meet Lille’s €60 million transfer fee, Yoro aspires to play in the Spanish capital, and the club is encouraging him to stick to his ambitions.

In fact, the report adds that Real Madrid are confident that they will ultimately find common ground with Lille and reach an agreement. And as it stands, they are ahead of PSG in the race.

Yoro’s current Lille contract expires in the summer of 2025, giving Real Madrid a significant advantage in the competition should the teenage sensation continue to show the desire to don the royal white jersey.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
