Real Madrid and Manchester United involved in bidding battle for French defensive prodigy

As per reports, Real Madrid and Manchester United are interested in LOSC Lille defender Leny Yoro. Yoro has recently emerged as one of the best young defenders in European football. Several top European clubs are keeping tabs on the Frenchman.

Manchester United have reportedly made a 51 million-pound bid for the 18-year-old. The Red Devils are looking to bolster their defense. Raphael Varane will leave the club while Jonny Evans, Harry Maguire, and Victor Lindelof face uncertain futures.

The Red Devils are reportedly keen on a young defensive partner for Lisandro Martinez. However, Real Madrid are also interested. They want a replacement for exit-bound Nacho. Los Blancos have reportedly asked Yoro to wait and not make any rushed decision on his future. YOro currently has a contract with Lille until 2025.

Manchester United star Jadon Sancho speaks about Kylian Mbappe’s Real Madrid move

Real Madrid have concluded yet another stellar free transfer. They have signed Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain. Manchester United loanee Jadon Sancho has shared his take on the transfer. Sancho reckons a difference-maker like Mbappe is a great addition to Real Madrid. He told CBS Sports:

“Mbappé gives goals, gives assists. He’s a threat to any team in the world. So, you know, to have Vinícius, Mbappé, [Jude] Bellingham, and Rodrygo all on the same team – it’s scary. It’s very scary.”

Kylian Mbappe is set to take over the number 9 shirt in his first season at Real Madrid. He is eventually set to shift to the number 10 when Luka Modric leaves or retires. Sancho, meanwhile, will return to Manchester United after his loan spell at Dortmund ends.
