As we enter into the final phase of the 2023/24 season, Real Madrid have already begun planning their squad and transfer operations for the next campaign.

Significant progress has already been made for two potential new arrivals in Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies, while work is being done to rope in two more players – Leny Yoro of Lille and Franco Mastantuono of River Plate.

And, according to multiple reports, things are moving in the right direction as far as the pursuit of Yoro from the Ligue 1 outfit is concerned.

Leny Yoro wants to decide on next move this month

Now, as per The Athletic, Leny Yoro is eager to decide on his future before the end of this month.

The 18-year-old has a plethora of top clubs pushing for his signing, including Real Madrid, PSG, and Chelsea, among others.

As per the report, Yoro is yet to make a final decision on his next move, but has been spoken to by multiple clubs about how he would fit into their plans and his potential wages and contractual details.

Real Madrid, for their part, have been progressing with caution in pursuit of the 18-year-old. Despite that, multiple talks have been held with the teenager’s agent, Jorge Mendes, in the past weeks.

The indications that have been received have been largely positive, putting Los Blancos among the best-placed candidates to sign Yoro.

Real Madrid are confident in the work that they have done in their efforts to sign Yoro and believe it will pay off, as it did in the past with Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, Jude Bellingham, Endrick, and Arda Guler.

Yoro’s contract at Lille expires in 2025 and the player has no intentions of renewing. As such, the French club will have to lower their transfer fee demands for the 18-year-old, which were close to €100 million at one point.

Real Madrid are eager to land Yoro and the player has given out positive indications as well. But the move could hinge on Lille’s demands as Los Blancos do not intend to pay over the odds for the 18-year-old.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
