Rival suitors dropping like flies with Real Madrid ‘close’ to next summer signing

La Liga giants Real Madrid are on the verge of adding to the club’s options at the back, by way of a fresh addition on the transfer front.

That’s according to Relevo, who point towards Leny Yoro as the latest player all set to take his talents to Spain’s capital.

Youngster Yoro has of course seen his name take its place front and centre in the media headlines across the continent for some time now.

This comes amid interest in his services on the part of a whole host of top European clubs.

Considered the next breakthrough star of French football, the 18-year-old is known to be front and centre on the wishlist, for one, of La Liga champions Real Madrid.

On the lookout for reinforcements at the back following the now-confirmed departure of captain Nacho, Real have long earmarked Yoro as a profile who could go on to lead the club’s defensive ranks for the next decade and beyond.

And, if the latest word doing the rounds in the media on Thursday is anything to go by, Los Blancos now look closer than ever to landing their man.

As per Relevo:

‘Leny Yoro is close to Real Madrid. All that remains is to formalize the agreement with a Lille that finds itself in a dead end.’

The ‘dead end’ at hand comes with Yoro himself having basically left his club with their hands tied.

Despite rival interest on the part of the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool, the starlet has made clear to Lille that he only wants Real Madrid.

Les Dogues have in turn been left with essentially no choice but to sell to the Spanish champions, in the knowledge that Yoro could otherwise walk for nothing in the summer of 2025.
