Real Madrid fans feel like signing Kylian Mbappé has made the club relaxed for this summer transfer window, but instead, Los Blancos are interested in signing Leny Yoro in this transfer window. The club is insistent on making the signing happen, especially after Nacho Fernandez's departure. Yoro has been on Real Madrid's radar for quite some time, and now the club is willing to splash millions to make the summer this summer instead of signing him next year as a free agent. Lille was trying to sell Yoro for more than $60 million, but while they realize they could lose the defender for next year, they may listen to Real Madrid's offer. Relevo reports that Lille is beginning to surrender itself to accepting Real Madrid's offer for Leny Yoro. The price is being negotiated, and it will be between $40 million and $50 million. The French defender is already willing to accept the move as he wishes to play with them sooner rather than later.

Marca reported a few weeks ago that Real Madrid had reached an agreement with Leny Yoro. Other clubs like PSG and Manchester United are also very interested in signing the defender, but he has given priority to joining Real Madrid. The other clubs are willing to double his salary and offer more to Lille, but if Yoro accepts Madrid, it wouldn't matter for Lille, and they would need to sell. His contract with Lille expires in the summer of 2025, and Yoro will not sign a new deal with Lille.

The closest club to rival Real Madrid is PSG since they are in the same league and have been interested in him for a while. The 18-year-old defender is one of the youngest and most exciting prospects in France and in the league.
