Real Madrid Face Two Major Hurdles to Beat Liverpool, PSG for Defensive Transfer Target

LOSC Lille defender Leny Yoro will likely be on the move this summer, considering his contract expires in 2025. As a result, if the player doesn’t want to extend his deal, the French club will need to sell him to secure a fee.

Yoro is linked to three clubs: Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, and Real Madrid. The 18-year-old is in high demand, and he’ll need to decide on his future if all three clubs can meet Lille’s fee demand.

Regarding Real Madrid, the Spanish giants face two significant hurdles in beating out Liverpool and PSG to land the standout this summer. According to Diario AS (h/t Fichajes), PSG’s involvement is the first and most significant obstacle.

The French club is eager to close the deal for the promising center-back and is even considering stretching its budget a bit to meet the club’s demands from Hauts-de-France.

As for the second issue, France will almost certainly call up Yoro for the Olympic Games, preventing him from starting preseason on time. However, Madrid can likely handle this minor problem without much trouble.

Moreover, the Spanish media outlet reveals that the higher-ups at Santiago Bernabéu are considering signing the defender now and letting him stay on loan at the French club for another season.

This would make negotiations easier and give the player a chance to continue developing in a familiar environment. It will be interesting to see which side comes out on top in this race.
