Hard blow in sight for PSG

Captain of the Lille defense at only 18 years old, Leny Yoro is very popular with Paris Saint-Germain. But Real Madrid is also very hot on this issue.

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have one thing in common. And we are not talking, for once, about Kylian Mbappé. The two clubs in fact have the same target with regard to central defense, Lille Leny Yoro.

At only 18 years old, the young Frenchman has established himself as an indisputable starter in Paulo Fonseca’s attractive Losc. And if PSG necessarily has it in its sights, Real intends to “do not let Yoro escape under any circumstances”according to Marca.

What price for Yoro?

Despite everything, we understand in the article in the Madrid daily that this file is not obvious. The fault in particular is the greed of Losc, who would demand no less than 100 million euros for his nugget. For Real, this is an off-market sum. We are talking about an 18-year-old player, with 37 matches of experience in Ligue 1 and a contract which ends in 17 months, the price “should never exceed 30 million euros”according to Marca.

To recover Yoro, Real should remain faithful to their method. Woo players over time, and encourage them not to extend their contract. As a result, the Merengues can recover free players (hello Kylian), or most often elements who are one year from the end of their lease, when for the clubs it is now or never to make a sale. Real is doing this for Alphonso Davies, and could make Bayern fold. For Lille, it will not be easy to resist. And for PSG, knowing that Losc prefers to sell its jewel to a foreign club, this also risks becoming complicated.
