Real Madrid’s defensive target informs PSG, Man Utd and Liverpool about his decision



According to transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano, the situation between Real Madrid and their defensive target Leny Yoro is pretty much straightforward. 

Yoro has expressed a strong desire to join Real Madrid and his preference has been communicated to Manchester United, Liverpool, and Paris Saint-Germain, all of whom are aware of his choice. 

Romano highlighted that Real Madrid are reluctant to pay a substantial fee for a player who could potentially become a free agent next summer. However, there is a belief that Lille may be willing to sell Yoro during this transfer window.

Earlier, it was reported that Lille were holding onto their €60 million price tag but Madrid are not willing to go beyond €40 million.

Interestingly, despite interest from other clubs, the path for them to aggressively pursue Yoro would only open if negotiations between Real Madrid and Lille break down, allowing the player to consider offers from other clubs. But the possibility of this is extremely narrow.

Real Madrid’s interest in Yoro has been widely reported, and the player is willing to be patient regardless of when the transfer takes place. 

Reports suggest that Yoro is even open to remaining at Lille for another year before joining Real Madrid on a free transfer. This strategy could exert pressure on Lille to negotiate with Real Madrid sooner rather than later.

Discussions between Yoro’s representatives and Real Madrid have been ongoing over the past few weeks without any issues reported from the player’s side. It appears that an agreement is close to being reached.

The primary obstacle now is for Real Madrid to come to terms with Lille, who are holding out for a significant transfer fee. These recent developments have put Real Madrid in a strong position and intensified the pressure on Lille to make a decision.

Real Madrid’s strategic approach, coupled with Yoro’s clear preference to join them, has been pivotal in shaping the current situation. The ball is now in Real Madrid’s court despite the waiting game.

Interestingly, regardless of Lille’s next move, the momentum appears to be favouring Real Madrid in this negotiation.

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.

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.
