BREAKING NEWS: coming from Fabrizio Romano, this is a done deal Lille have reportedly accepted the €90 million asking price from Chelsea for their French wonderkid as he has been linked with a big-money move away to Chelsea, he has been one of the most standout players in Ligue 1 this campaign and his emergence onto the senior stage has been noted by many top clubs in Europe. This is a big win as Chelsea has finally secured his signing.

Leny Yoro, the French wonderkid, is reportedly asking €90 million from Lille, as he is being linked to a big-money move away.


Leny Yoro, an 18-year-old football prodigy, has made a significant impact in Ligue 1, drawing attention from various elite European clubs. Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, and Real Madrid have all expressed interest in acquiring the promising French U21 talent.

The latest development revealing that Real Madrid has opted out of securing a new centre-back in the January transfer window has reshaped the landscape. Initially considered a prime contender to sign Yoro, Real Madrid’s decision has now created an opportunity for another club to make a move for him in the current month.

While Real Madrid continues to keep tabs on Yoro’s situation, their deliberate choice to postpone reinforcing their defensive lineup might serve as a window for one of the Premier League’s major clubs to seize the chance.

Reports from Fichajes indicate that Lille, Yoro’s current club, has set a steep asking price of €90 million for the young talent. This high valuation might deter potential suitors. Despite this, Yoro is highly regarded as one of Europe’s finest young talents. Given Real Madrid’s strong track record in the French football market, clubs are advised to consider making a decisive move to secure Yoro before their eyes.

Fabrizio Romano, a renowned transfer expert, confirmed that Real Madrid, following internal discussions involving club directors, the president, and Ancelotti, have decided against pursuing a new centre-back in the current transfer window. Carlo Ancelotti’s statements, influenced by injuries to key defenders David Alaba and Eder Militao, affirm that Real Madrid will not seek a centre-back addition this January, potentially leaving an open pathway for other clubs to prioritize signing Yoro.

Romano further clarified that while Real Madrid remains actively engaged in scouting potential centre-backs, including those deemed crucial for future seasons, they believe the current market doesn’t offer the right opportunity. The club is committed to ongoing exploration in the centre-back market, suggesting a potential move for a defender, but not until the right option aligns with their vision, signaling a postponement of such signings until a later window.
