Manchester United offer "€50m" for Leny Yoro while Liverpool are prepared to offer around the same amount Transfers

Liverpool are looking to the next era of their centre-backs following the appointment of new manager Arne Slot, with 32-year-old defender Joel Matip leaving Anfield at the end of his contract and defensive leader Virgil van Dijk also ageing at 33.

Along with Ibrahima Konate and Jarell Quansah, the club is looking for a gem of a player who can become a mainstay in the final line, and recently there has been growing interest in LOSC Lille’s France U-23 international defender Leny Yoro, with related news being circulated on a daily basis.

Ben Jacobs (sports journalist) updated the clubs over the player and reported that Manchester United had presented an offer. He also stressed that Liverpool are also preparing an offer, but their only hope is to join Real Madrid.

“Real Madrid, Manchester United, Liverpool and PSG all want Leny Yoro. All four clubs view him as a generational talent.”

“Feeling remains Yoro will end up at Real Madrid and talks are progressing.”

“Manchester United have already had a €50m bid accepted. Liverpool prepared to pay a similar ballpark, but only if Yoro indicates he’s changed his mind. They have known for some time Yoro’s preference.”

“Yoro wants Real. And he could even wait until 2025 and join them as a free agent if a deal isn’t struck this summer.”

The Premier League side are in a difficult position and have to convince the 18-year-old centre-back. Nevertheless, Real Madrid will be forced to pull out if Lille offer a transfer fee that is also acceptable to them and offer him an individual contract.

The club has decided to acquire French international Kylian Mbappe for the new season, and also has Aurélien Tchouaméni and Eduardo Camavinga, who play for the national team, and will he play with them in the Spanish capital, or start a new challenge in the Premier League…?
