Leny Yoro prepared to wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid

LOSC Lille defender and Liverpool target Leny Yoro is reportedly willing to wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid as a free agent.

According to a report by The Athletic, Leny Yoro is the subject of interest from Real Madrid. The LOSC Lille defender, valued at around €60 million by the Ligue 1 club, is also a target for Liverpool. However, the 18-year-old defensive sensation is ready to wait until the 2025 summer transfer window to complete a Bosman move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

The rise and rise of Leny Yoro

Leny Yoro has established himself as one of the best young prospects in the world, continuing France’s trend of producing world-class prodigies every year. The 18-year-old is already a mainstay at the back for LOSC Lille and turned out nearly 50 times across all competitions in the 2023/24 season.

Meanwhile, the Frenchman’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe. Premier League bigwigs like Liverpool have shown interest in the teenage sensation. However, Leny Yoro’s likeliest destination will be Real Madrid. Meanwhile, LOSC Lille will demand around €60 million to part ways with the youngster.

Will Yoro embark on a new adventure this year?

Liverpool will look to sign a centre-back in the summer transfer window after parting ways with Joel Matip as a free agent. Yoro has thus emerged as a viable target, with the Merseyside club in constant contact with his entourage. However, signing the French defensive prospect will be a tall order for Liverpool.

Leny Yoro has his heart set on joining Real Madrid when he leaves LOSC Lille, meaning Liverpool must identify alternatives to the 18-year-old Frenchman. Recent reports have claimed that personal terms are not an issue for Yoro, with the Merengues stepping up their interest in him.

However, coughing up €60 million to secure Leny Yoro’s services in the summer transfer window is not an option for Real Madrid. The reigning La Liga champions do not want to break the bank to sign the teenage sensation and will only pay around €40 million to land him. However, Yoro has boosted Real Madrid’s prospects, as he is ready to wait another year before moving to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Leny Yoro’s readiness to wait until the 2025 summer transfer window means Liverpool will not have a chance to sign him this year. So, the Reds must set their sights elsewhere for defensive reinforcement, with Real Madrid in the pole position to land the French defender.
