In recent hours, Paris Saint Germain has intensified negotiations to acquire the services of Leny Yoro, 18-year-old defender who has stood out for Lille over the last two seasons and who is attracting interest from big European clubs, including Real Madrid. The Parisians have set the young central defender as one of the priorities to strengthen their defense, one of the most promising in European football.

Although Yoro has not yet said ‘yes’ to PSG, because he is waiting for Real Madrid, both Luis Campos and Qatar are trying to reach an agreement with Lille. The northern club, whose president, Olivier Letang, did not want to sell the player under any circumstances to the current Ligue 1 champion, has recently opened the door to a sale, after the defender will decline the multiple renewal offers that have been put on the table, with his contract expiring in 2025.

Firstly, in winter, Lille intended to receive 90 million euros for Yoro, an unaffordable figure for all the clubs immersed in the bid to sign him, PSG, Real Madrid and Liverpool. After the footballer’s refusal to renew, the ‘Dogos’ have lowered their intentions, setting their asking price at 60 million, an amount more than acceptable for the club from the French capital.

The next few days are anticipated to be decisive in unblocking an operation that could be significant for the PSG, focused on incorporating young promises from Ligue 1 to completely Frenchize its team. In Paris they trust that, finally, Yoro accept the offer from the Parisians and become an important piece for Paris Saint-Germain in defense, especially after Lucas Hernandez’s knee injury in Dortmund.

The defender waits for Real Madrid

Despite the strong interest of Paris Saint-Germain in Yoro, the player is still waiting for Real Madrid, a club he gives priority to according to L’Équipe. The still Lille player, with whom he should not play an official match again except for a last-minute surprise, imagines a path similar to that taken by Raphaël Varane, signed by the whites in 2011, also with a strong interest in Paris, after having also shone in the north of France, but at Lens, Lille’s rival.

Thus, PSG, which has intensified negotiations with Lille, will have to not only convince the northern club, but also the footballer, who at the moment is not insensitive to the strong interest that Real Madrid has shown During the last months. Therefore, a long-distance race is looming with multiple parties that will have to give in at some point or clarify a path without an obvious outcome.
