Real Madrid are currently in pursuit of the young defender Leny Yoro from Lille, and according to a report from MARCA, the Spanish club might finalize the deal before June 30. This urgency is due to significant interest from other top clubs in acquiring Yoro.

Interestingly, the report adds that Paris Saint-Germain recently offered €60 million for the defender. While this amount is close to what Lille is asking for, Yoro turned down the offer, politely saying, “Thanks, but no.”

It appears that Yoro has already informed all interested clubs that his preferred destination is Real Madrid. However, the situation is becoming more pressing, and the agreement with Lille needs to be concluded soon.

As the days go by, the pressure increases. PSG’s sporting director, Luis Campos, has been actively working on this transfer, and their offer is quite close to Lille’s asking price. 

Despite this, Yoro has consistently declined their approaches, sticking to his decision to wait for Real Madrid. The defender remains firm in his choice despite multiple attempts to sway him.

Initially, they planned to wait until June 30 to proceed with negotiations. However, given the growing interest from clubs like PSG, Manchester United, and Liverpool, the timeline for finalising the deal may be moved up.

Real Madrid’s leadership is already planning for next season’s lineup of centre-backs. With the expected departures of Rafa Marin and Nacho, the squad for Carlo Ancelotti is likely to include Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, David Alaba, and potentially Yoro, if the negotiations are successful. 

Much depends on Nacho

However, the success of this transfer heavily depends on Nacho’s future. The club captain is currently in negotiations with Al Qadsiah, who have offered him a two-year contract

Once Nacho’s situation is resolved, Real Madrid will likely accelerate their efforts to secure Yoro’s signing.

At present, Real Madrid are keen to acquire Leny Yoro and is under pressure to finalise the deal quickly due to competition from other major clubs. 

PSG have made a significant offer, but Yoro’s preference for Real Madrid remains firm. The next steps in this transfer saga hinge on resolving Nacho’s future, after which Real Madrid are expected to move swiftly to bring Yoro on board.

Real Madrid defender set to stay after requesting to see out his contract

Real Madrid welcomed four players back from loan this summer: Reinier, Rafa Marin, Juanmi Latasa, and Jesus Vallejo and bid goodbye to Marin already, while the others are expected to evaluate their futures with the club.

Vallejo joined Real Madrid in 2015, but he has primarily played on loan at other teams, including Real Zaragoza, VfB Stuttgart, Wolves, and Granada twice.

Having concluded his third stint at Granada, the player is back in the Spanish capital and now seeks a resolution over his future.

Jesus Vallejo held a meeting with Real Madrid’s hierarchy

Indeed, according to AS, Jesus Vallejo recently met with Real Madrid and made a request to fulfill the final year of his contract.

The club has opted not to exert pressure, leaving his future in his own hands: whether he decides to leave or stay, they support his decision.

After all, Vallejo has been with the club for several years, and Real Madrid intends to honour the wishes of one of the players who have been at the club for the longest time.

The 27-year-old centre-back was a part of the Real Madrid squad in the 2021/2022 season and played sparingly.

But he proved to be a dependable option when called upon and enjoyed a memorable performance in the Champions League against Manchester City as a late substitute.

Due to Real Madrid’s options at the back and the potential signing of Leny Yoro, Vallejo is unlikely to find regular game time if he opts to stay put.

Despite managing just three appearances for relegated Granada last season due to an injury, Vallejo looks forward to putting his physical woes behind him and starting afresh.
