Manchester United Take Lead in Leny Yoro Pursuit with £42m Bid

Manchester United have made a significant stride in their quest to sign highly-rated teenager Leny Yoro from Lille.

However, the transfer saga is far from over, as Real Madrid remains a strong contender for Yoro’s services.

Reports from Spain suggest that the player favors a move to the Spanish giants, who are willing to either negotiate a fee with Lille this summer or wait until 2025 to sign him as a free agent.

For now, the ball is in Yoro’s court, as he decides whether to accept an earlier move to Manchester United or hold out for a potential switch to Real Madrid.

United are widely reported to want at least one new centre-back this summer as well as a defensive midfielder and a striker.

Matthijs de Ligt is also in talks over moving to Old Trafford with personal terms agreed, according to the Mirror, as negotiations continue with Bayern Munich over their £42m valuation.

Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite is another option but the Toffees are reportedly ready to rebuff a second offer of £50m.

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Manuel Ugarte is also on their radar and French outlet Le10Sport claim talks have accelerated in recent days over a deal worth £38m plus bonuses.

PSG coach Luis Enrique is said to have the final say on his club selling the Uruguayan.

United are also closing in on an addition in attack, too, with Joshua Zirkzee expected to join from Bologna for his £34m release clause after beating off competition from AC Milan.

Manchester United are poised to become a formidable force next season if they can successfully secure all their desired signings.
