According to Jose Felix Diaz from MARCA, Real Madrid’s summer plans include more than just bringing Kylian Mbappe to the team. 

The outlet confirms that they are also eyeing Leny Yoro, a defender from Lille, who could join Mbappe in moving to the Spanish capital.

It is to be noted that despite securing a major deal with Mbappe, Real Madrid are still keen on signing Yoro from Lille. 

However, knowing Madrid’s interest, it is up to Yoro to show his interest in joining Los Blancos by turning down bigger offers from other clubs, just like Jude Bellingham did last year.

Madrid see Yoro as ‘future Varane’

A few days ago, it was reported that Real Madrid were leading the race to sign Yoro, who is seen as a future star like Raphael Varane. 

Sources mentioned that Real Madrid were ready to offer Lille an initial proposal of €30 million plus bonuses for Yoro, but nothing concrete has happened yet.

Interestingly, Real Madrid are not the only club interested in Yoro. Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool are also pursuing the young defender

This is exactly why Real Madrid want Yoro to demonstrate his desire to join their team rather than the other way around.

Real Madrid aware of the obstacles

It is said that Real Madrid know that signing Yoro could be challenging, mainly because of PSG’s involvement. 

The Ligue 1 champions are very eager to sign the promising centre-back and are even considering increasing their budget to secure him.

On the other hand, there are reports suggesting that Real Madrid are willing to sign Yoro this summer but let him stay on loan at Lille for another season. 

This approach could make the negotiations smoother and allow Yoro to continue developing in a familiar setting. Now, it remains to be seen which team will come out on top in this competition for Yoro’s signature.

Real Madrid face Premier League, Saudi Arabia competition for free transfer target

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
