Various rumors have circulated over the last few days linking Lille OSC defender Leny Yoro to Paris Saint-Germain. The capital club is keen on the youngster, but they’ll likely need to wait until the summer.
The Parisians are aggressively pursuing Yoro because Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, and Manchester United have also expressed interest in him. Therefore, PSG needs to act quickly if they want to secure his services.
Lille manager Paulo Fonseca stated that Yoro has agreed to stay with Les Dogues past the January transfer window.
“He knows he’s staying here,” Fonseca said. “This week, I had a great conversation with Leny. We talked about the situation. I told him what I thought about it. And he understood that he had to stay here and only think about Lille.”

According to a recent report, PSG is keen to facilitate his advancement and will make squad adjustments next summer if necessary. Furthermore, Yoro, now represented by agent Jorge Mendes’ team, also advocates for a move to PSG.
It will be interesting to see if, in the summer, the capital club makes this aggressive approach for Yoro, who is under contract until 2025. As a result, Lille might have to consider selling the player if there’s no contract extension.
