A report by Mario Cortegana and Guillermo Rai via The Athletic has confirmed that Real Madrid top target, Leny Yoro, is open to staying at Lille for another year before joining the Merengues for free. 

It must be noted that the young defender’s contract runs until 2025, and everyone knows he wants to play for Real Madrid. This is why Los Blancos are only planning to offer between €30 million to €40 million, while Lille are hoping for a sum closer to €60 million.

The directors at Lille are known for being tough negotiators, and this situation is no different. However, Yoro has time on his side. 

By not ruling out the possibility of staying at Lille for one more year, he could join Real Madrid as a free agent later on, which would increase the pressure on his current club to negotiate with the Spanish giants sooner.

Real Madrid have been in touch

Real Madrid have already been in contact with Yoro’s representatives over the past few weeks. As previously mentioned, there are no issues from the player’s side, and an agreement seems to be in place.

Yoro, a teenage sensation, has his heart set on Real Madrid and is ready to turn down offers from other top clubs like Liverpool, PSG, and Manchester United.

The main obstacle now is for Real Madrid to reach an agreement with Lille, as the French club is demanding a high transfer fee. Real Madrid remain firm in their stance, not willing to offer more than €40 million, considering that Yoro’s contract expires in 2025.

Pressure is on Lille

This recent development has given Real Madrid the upper hand and increased the pressure on Lille.

The Spanish capital giants’ strategic moves, along with Yoro’s clear preference to join them, have played a significant role in this situation. It is now up to Lille to make the next move.

No matter what decision Lille make, the situation seems to be leaning in Real Madrid’s favour. 

The coming weeks will be crucial in determining whether Yoro will move to Madrid this summer or stay at Lille for one more year before making the move for free.

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.
