Tottenham star would be a good fit at Real Madrid, claims agent

Emerson Royal’s saga at Tottenham Hotspurs has been a strange combination of sweet and sour. The Brazilian right-back signed for the English side from Barcelona in a deal that was worth close to €25 million but his numbers do not do justice.

Earlier this week, Emerson’s agent gave an interview to Charla Podcast where he revealed that there was a good chance that his client would leave the London-based club soon. He also added an interesting point about Real Madrid.

“There is a great possibility that Emerson will leave Tottenham. We believe it’s time for him to take a bigger leap & go to a team that fights for titles. I think he fits a giant like Real Madrid,” Emerson’s agent said.

In 22 Premier League appearances for Tottenham this season, the 24-year-old has scored two goals and provided one assist. His numbers in the final third are subpar with under 0.5 key passes per game and no big chance created all season.

Defensively, Emerson averages 0.5 interceptions, two tackles, and 2.3 clearances per game in addition to winning 4.5 duels.

Emerson’s career in Europe began at Real Betis, although Barcelona also had owned 50% of his rights. The Catalans purchased him outright in the summer of 2021, before selling to Tottenham right away, for the aforementioned €25 million fee.

The right-back position is indeed one that Real Madrid need to reinforce in the coming years. With Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez both already 31, a long-term replacement is a necessity.

Los Blancos see Reece James as a viable option and could push for him in the summer as their next right-back. As for Emerson, his links with the club right now are purely from the player’s side and there is no report that the Merengues consider him an option.

Transfer Triumph: In-demand defender picks Real Madrid above other suitors

Real Madrid have received a major transfer boost as Lille defender, Leny Yoro, has chosen to join Los Blancos over other interested clubs, reports Alejandro Alcazar via SPORT.

When Paris Saint-Germain attempted to negotiate a deal with Lille, offering more money than Real Madrid, Yoro made it clear he preferred the Spanish giants. 

Despite PSG’s efforts, including meetings with Yoro’s representatives, they could not convince him to change his mind.

Interestingly, the outlet mentions that Yoro is following a similar path to his compatriot Aurelien Tchouameni, who also chose Real Madrid despite competition from PSG and several Premier League teams. 

Real Madrid really value Yoro

Real Madrid see Yoro as a valuable addition, especially with the recent departure of Nacho. This move has made it crucial for the club to find a reliable replacement, and Yoro is their chosen candidate. 

It is to be noted that Yoro has one year remaining on his contract with Lille, who initially asked for a hefty €100 million transfer fee.

This amount was considered too high for a player who could leave for free after a year. Lille eventually reduced the asking price to €60 million, an amount that PSG and other clubs like Manchester United and Liverpool were willing to meet. 

However, Real Madrid were not prepared to pay more than €30 million, knowing that Yoro wanted to join them and could do so for free next year.

What is Real Madrid’s strategy?

It is said that Real Madrid’s initial plan was to let Yoro play one more year at Lille and sign him for free in 2025. They were even ready to offer Yoro a special signing bonus, similar to what they did with David Alaba and Antonio Rudiger, which would be added to his salary. 

But Nacho’s departure changed everything. Real Madrid now urgently need a fourth central defender, prompting them to enter negotiations with Lille, something they had previously avoided.

To secure Yoro’s signing this summer, Real Madrid are considering raising their offer to €40 million, including performance-based bonuses. 

Lille might accept this offer, knowing that Yoro could either join Real Madrid now or stay for another year and leave for free.
