Manchester United lodge €60 million offer to sign Leny Yoro

Manchester United have reportedly offered €60 million to sign 18-year-old LOSC Lille defender Leny Yoro, a target for Real Madrid.

According to a report by Spanish outlet MARCA, Leny Yoro is the subject of interest from Manchester United. The Red Devils have submitted a bid worth €60 million to sign the LOSC Lille defender in the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, the 18-year-old defensive sensation is also a target for Real Madrid.

The rise and rise of Leny Yoro

Leny Yoro might not have foreseen becoming a highly sought-after defender in the market as a teenager. However, such has been the Frenchman’s impact in the early days of his professional career that he has the who’s who of European football closely monitoring his progress.

The 18-year-old is already a regular for LOSC Lille despite still being in his teens. Yoro amassed over 3,500 minutes of game time across 44 appearances in all competitions, chipping in with three goals. Meanwhile, the youngster’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe, including Real Madrid and Manchester United.

A big summer beckons?

Real Madrid might delve into the market for a centre-back in the summer transfer window amid uncertainties surrounding the future of Nacho. The Real Madrid captain might depart from the Santiago Bernabeu as a free agent, possibly for an adventure in MLS. So, Yoro has emerged as a viable target for Los Blancos.

However, the latest update might compel Real Madrid to step up the interest in the 18-year-old, with Manchester United entering the scene with a bid. The report by MARCA has claimed that the Red Devils have presented an offer worth €60 million to sign the French defender from LOSC Lille.

Manchester United’s interest in Leny Yoro is understandable. The Red Devils are parting ways with Raphael Varane, who will depart from Old Trafford as a free agent. Jonny Evans might also leave Manchester United, thereby necessitating the need for a new centre-back, with Yoro being an option worth considering.

It is unclear if a bid worth €60 million might be enough for Manchester United to secure Leny Yoro’s services in the summer transfer window. However, widespread reports have claimed that the 18-year-old Frenchman prefers a move to Real Madrid. So, Manchester United might have an uphill task to convince Yoro to join them.
