Real Madrid See One Major Hurdle to Beat PSG for Promising Defender, Romano Says

LOSC Lille defender Leny Yoro could be on the move this summer, with Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid keen on the young defender. However, the Spanish only see one hurdle before they make a push for the teenager.

Yoro is under contract with Lille until 2025, so if the center-back believes this summer is the time to leave, the team cannot do much if he doesn’t extend his contract. 

As a result, Les Dogues will have to listen to offers to ensure they secure the best sum for the 18-year-old. Transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano reports that Real Madrid’s main target for defense is Yoro.

Nonetheless, Romano highlights that Real Madrid has already contacted his agent, Jorge Mendes, and are aware of PSG’s competition. The final decision depends on LOSC’s asking price, but the La Liga side will be in the market for a defender as Nacho is expected to be released at the end of the season.

It will be interesting to see if the asking price concerns the Parisians or whether they are keen on paying the high price, as they likely see Yoro as a key part of their defense for years to come.
