Things are starting to heat up as far as the future of Lille defender and Real Madrid top target Leny Yoro is concerned.

The 18-year-old has been a man in demand this summer, with Real Madrid not the only club chasing his signature.

Indeed, the likes of PSG, Liverpool, and Manchester United are all looking at the teenage prodigy, with the latter even making an offer for him recently.

Manchester United’s bid accepted

In fact, according to journalist Nabil Djellit, Manchester United’s offer, worth €50 million plus add-ons, has already been accepted by Lille.

The proposal is said to be much superior to what Real Madrid are willing to offer for Leny Yoro and as such the Ligue 1 club have accepted it.

While that may be the case, a deal is far from being completed as Yoro continues to prefer a transfer to Real Madrid.

As per the report, the Merengues have offered only €20 million for the 18-year-old, whose contract with the French outfit expires in 2025.

It is the only official offer that Real Madrid have sent to Lille for the teenager thus far and are confident about closing the deal as they have an agreement on the player’s side.

Santi Aouna also corroborates the story of Manchester United tabling a higher offer, said to be around €60 million (including add-ons and variables).

Real Madrid, though, are not fazed and are prepared to be patient and wait for Lille to accept their terms, knowing that Yoro only wants to move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Lille, for their part, are eager to make the most and rake in huge sums from Yoro’s sale, which is why they are leaning towards Manchester United’s proposal. But with the defender holding firm on wanting to join Madrid, they could be forced to accept a lower offer.

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.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

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.
