Lille Ready to Spite PSG as Real Madrid Is Top Candidate to Land Wonderkid, Report Says

LOSC Lille standout Lille Yoro draws interest from several top European clubs aiming to strengthen their defense. Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are leading the race for the Frenchman.

At 18, Yoro faces a crucial decision about his future. The center-back’s contract with Lille ends in 2025, and if he opts not to renew, he must choose his next playing destination.

Real Madrid has scooped up young French talent over the past few transfer windows, like Eduardo Camavinga and Aurélien Tchouaméni, so they’re ready to do the same with Yoro. 

MARCA’s José Félix Díaz reports that Lille don’t want to sell Yoro to PSG. As a result, that would make Real Madrid the favorite if Les Dogues want to act petty. Díaz adds that if a club is above the rest in the race for Yoro, it’s Real Madrid, and from the player’s side, he also wants Real Madrid.

Nonetheless, PSG will do their best to beat out the Spanish giants. CBS Sports journalist Jonathan Johnson recently told PSG Talk that the teenage defender is one of the club’s top targets this summer. 

“I know for a fact that he is one of PSG’s top targets, [and] coming into the summer, they will try everything they can to bring him in,” Johnson told PSG Talk. “I think he’d be an ideal fit, not just what PSG are trying to do now but also in the future [and] how they’re trying to develop.”
