Real Madrid’s interest in Leny Yoro is no more a secret. As reported before, the team from the Spanish capital might get into talks with Lille over a potential move and their chances are boosted by the fact that the 18-year-old is prioritising the Los Blancos.

Interestingly enough, while speaking in an interview with Oh My Goal France, the young defender has added fuel to the fire, saying that former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is the number 1 defender.

The 18-year-old went on to add that Ramos, who currently plays for Sevilla, is someone who has inspired an entire generation.

“Best centre-backs I’ve seen in Ligue 1? Number 1 is Sergio Ramos. An incredible defender who inspired a lot of young players like myself when I was little,” he said.

What’s the latest with Yoro?

Over the past few weeks, it has emerged that Yoro is being prioritized by Real Madrid as they continue to seek young talents across the continent.

However, the record European champions will not go all out for the 18-year-old as Lille have slapped a hefty €100 million price tag on his head.

It is to be noted that Yoro’s ongoing deal with Lille runs until 2025 and the French team has repeatedly tried to approach him with an extension. The player, however, has made up his mind that he wants to take up new challenges.

Yoro to decide his future this month

As stated before, Yoro is keen to decide his future by the end of the month and given his situation, he has attracted attention from several prestigious clubs such as PSG and Chelsea among others.

According to reports, Yoro has not settled on his next move yet, however, various clubs have approached him, discussing his potential role in their teams as well as the financial aspects like wages and contract terms.

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
