Real Madrid: the first recruit validated by Kylian Mbappé


By: Manu Tournoux

It's no secret to anyone, and even less so to the readers of French Football Weekly. As revealed numerous times by us, Real Madrid is very interested in the services of Leny Yoro, the nugget of LOSC, alongside other big European clubs such as PSG. The central defender, only 18 years old, has a string of convincing performances with the Mastiffs and will likely be sold this summer.

This Monday, the Spanish daily A.S. says a little more. It's simple, Leny Yoro is the big favorite of Madrid management to strengthen their central defense next summer. The Merengues want to make him their third summer recruit, after Kylian Mbappé and Alphonso Davies, the Bayern full-back. LOSC is asking, according to the Iberian newspaper, 60 million euros from international hopeful suitors. An amount that Real Madrid can put on the table without too many problems.

Mbappé is a fan

His profile is reminiscent of that of Raphaël Varane at the Madrid staff, who wants to rejuvenate its defensive sector, where most of the players are already over thirty. But above all, the media explains that in this story, there is a man who has a very specific role to play: Kylian Mbappé. Indeed, the Parisian is a very fan of the player, and he even explained to those around him that Yoro is the defender who causes him the most problems in France.

And it is an opinion that the management of Real Madrid will necessarily take into account. In addition to the opinion of his galactic future, the Merengue management also has particularly flattering scouting reports regarding the central defender. Case to be continued, but it is very likely that Yoro's future will be written under the Madrid sun…
