The news of Nacho Fernandez’s imminent move to Saudi Arabia has come as a shock to many, but it is something Real Madrid have been anticipating for a long time.

The Spaniard is all set to reunite with former Real Madrid teammate Karim Benzema by joining Al Ittihad on a free transfer.

Nacho’s departure could leave Real Madrid desperately looking for a new central defender. And that is where Leny Yoro comes into the fray.

Leny Yoro ready to wait for Real Madrid

It is no secret that Real Madrid remain in pole position to sign Leny Yoro in the coming summer. However, the links died down a little in recent weeks, as the club focused on the Alphonso Davies deal.

Nevertheless, with Nacho on the verge of leaving Santiago Bernabeu, Yoro has once again come into focus.

An update from Fabrizio Romano suggests Yoro is aware of the recent happenings and is simply waiting for Real Madrid to make them their absolute priority in the coming summer.

The Frenchman, who is also aware of interest from other clubs across Europe, is ready to wait until Real Madrid make it absolutely clear they cannot sign him this summer.

Yoro would, only then, consider approaches from other clubs. But for the time being, he is ready to stay put in Lille, allowing Real Madrid to bide their time and propose an offer in the weeks to come.

Real Madrid, though, must be swift in their approach, knowing Paris Saint-Germain are more than prepared to make an offer for the Frenchman.

A key for Los Blancos will be to get rid of unwanted stars as soon as possible, which, in turn, will enable them to free up enough space to sign Leny Yoro this summer.

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.
