Not too long ago, Manchester City boasted of possibly three of the most talented group of U-18s in the same side. Led by Phil Foden, Jadon Sancho and Brahim Diaz rounded off this trio, all expected to lead the next generation at City.

While Foden’s stocks continued to rise, though, Sancho and Diaz had to leave City to find greener pastures elsewhere. The former joined Dortmund in 2017, while the latter left for Real Madrid in 2019.

Joining and finding minutes at Madrid is far from an easy task, though. With the squad packed to the brim with superstars, Diaz was reduced to six games in La Liga in the 2019/20 season, during which he had no goal contributions.

He left to join AC Milan in the summer of 2020 on a loan deal, and has been with the Italian giants since then. Three years and a Scudetto since then, Diaz is finally set to return to Madrid this summer.

According to Mario Cortegana (h/t Madrid Zone), Diaz is expected to renew his contract at Madrid once he returns from Milan. However, a final decision on his future is yet to be made.

The Spaniard’s current deal with Madrid expires in the summer of 2025, but he seems adamant about succeeding with the defending UCL champions.

An attacking midfielder by trade, Diaz can also play on the wing, which is where he plied his trade during his short-lived time at Madrid.

While he is definitely returning, it seems next to impossible to assume that Diaz will find a spot in a Real Madrid team already jam-packed with talent. Further, if reports are to be believed, Florentino Perez will likely look to invest even more money in the team in the summer.

Now that Nacho is ready to join Al Qadsiah, Real Madrid have decided to ramp up their efforts to sign Lille defender Leny Yoro, reports Jose Felix Diaz via MARCA.

As reported before, Nacho has decided to end his career with the Spanish club as he has agreed to a two-year contract with Al Qadsiah in the Saudi Pro League. With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now have a spot open in their defence and are eager to fill it with Yoro.

It is important to note that Yoro has attracted a lot of interest from other clubs. Paris Saint-Germain have been particularly active in trying to sign him, offering €60 million for the player. 

Although this offer is close to what Lille wants, Yoro isn’t interested in moving to PSG.

What Yoro is looking forward to is joining Real Madrid. While the player and Real Madrid have a verbal agreement, the deal with Lille still needs to be finalised soon.

What about the transfer fee?

Regarding the transfer fee, Real Madrid are hesitant to match PSG’s €60 million offer because Yoro has only one year left on his contract.

Initially, the club planned to wait until June 30 to begin serious negotiations. However, due to the increasing interest from clubs like PSG, Manchester United, and Liverpool, they might need to speed up the process.

With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now has the necessary room to strengthen their defence and Yoro fits the bill. 

Madrid already have Yoro in plans

It must be noted that the club’s management, in accordance with Carlo Ancelotti, is already planning next season’s lineup of centre-backs. 

They expect Rafa Marin to leave, so the defensive lineup for coach Carlo Ancelotti is likely to include Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, David Alaba, and possibly Yoro if they can complete the negotiations successfully.

Real Madrid are focusing on building a strong defence for the upcoming season. They see Yoro as a valuable addition and are working hard to secure his transfer. 

The next steps involve reaching an agreement with Lille and finalizing the transfer details as soon as possible.
