It could only be a matter of time before Nacho Fernandez leaves Real Madrid, with the club captain in advanced talks to sign for Saudi Arabian club Al-Qadsiah, who have tabled a two-year contract offer.

Nacho’s potential exit has forced Real Madrid to step up their efforts to sign a new defender in the transfer market.

Regarded as one of the finest defensive talents in Europe, Leny Yoro has emerged as the undisputed top choice for Real Madrid, in their bid to beef up the central defensive area.

Leny Yoro wants to join Real Madrid

In a major boost for Los Blancos, Leny Yoro has now informed the club he wishes to move to Santiago Bernabeu in the coming summer, reports The Athletic.

It appears the young defender is happy with the terms offered by Los Blancos and is ready to make the jump to Bernabeu.

Yoro’s other suitors, such as PSG, Manchester United, and Liverpool, are also understood to be aware of the development.

Yoro’s desire to join Real Madrid could go a long way in helping the club have some sway in the transfer negotiations, which still remains the trickiest part of the job.

Deal with Lille: A challenge for Madrid?

The main bone of contention, as far as Lille’s Real Madrid move is concerned, is the lack of agreement between the Spanish giants and LOSC Lille.

The report adds that Real Madrid have yet to hold any direct conversation with Lille over the potential transfer of Leny Yoro this summer.

Lille are firmly holding out for a fee of €60 million for Yoro. Real Madrid, however, do not want to spend more than €30-40 million.

It will be interesting to see whether or not Real Madrid try to sweeten the deal by offering any player in return. But for the time being, sealing the transfer of Leny Yoro by the end of the month could be a challenging prospect for Los Blancos.

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.
