Leny Yoro seems to be the next big signing that Real Madrid wants to make this summer after securing Kylian Mbappé. The French defender plays at Lille and is regarded as one of the best young talents in Europe. He is 18 years old but yet has been a key player for Lille this past season which has caught the eye of many big European clubs, including Real Madrid. Los Blancos faced competition as Manchester United was looking to beat them for the signature of the French defender. Lille has been asking for a price of over $60 million, but Real Madrid wants to pay around $35 million. According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United's formal bid worth over $50 million for Leny Yoro has been accepted by Lille. The French club wants Yoro to accept the move to Man United since it is the best deal for the club, but the player is insistent on going to Real Madrid next season. Yoro could already be on the move to Manchester United if he accepted the deal, but he is still hoping that Lille accepts a bid from Real Madrid in order to leave.

Real Madrid is not worried in the slightest about this bid of Manchester United being accepted by Lille because they also know that the player wants to join them and will wait for them. The French club still insists on a price bid of around $60 million, but Real Madrid still does not want to pay for that amount. Yoro's contract with Lille expires next summer and the player is willing to play another season with Lille to then level the club as a free agent and then join Real Madrid.

This is all in Yoro's hands now as Manchester United's bid was accepted, and the Premier League club will have to convince the player to join them next season. If Yoro does change his mind about not joining Manchester United and moving to Real Madrid, many football fans can expect the player to play in the Premier League next season. Manchester United is in need of a new center-back since Raphael Varane left the club, and the team needs an upgrade in that position. The French defender could be convinced to join by being assured that he will be a key player for Man United next season and perhaps a starter for the whole season.

The Manchester United legend that asked Leny Yoro to join

Not only do the fans of Manchester United want to sign, but a Manchester United legend publicly asked Leny Yoro to join the club. Rio Ferdinand spoke on his podcast and posted a video of him saying, "If you’re looking Leny Yoro, please accept for Man Utd, please!" Yoro could see this video of Ferdinand as an honor since the former Man United defender is a legend of the club and of football after many years of representing the club and winning multiple trophies. In the next few days, a decision could be made about whether he joins Man United, joins Real Madrid, or stays at Lille for a year.
