Initial negotiations to recruit Lille’s highly-rated French defender Leny Yoro have begun, according to Le10sport via TEAMTalk, with Manchester United.

Leny Yoro is a Gem

International France U-21 Yoro, who debuted in the top division for Lille at the age of sixteen, is seen as having a bright future. The big clubs have not overlooked the center-back, who is among the finest in the world for his age group.

After being connected to many centre backs throughout the summer transfer window. Including Jean-Clair Todibo, Axel Disasi, and Antonio Silva, Manchester United has been searching for a new centre back for months.

While Lisandro Martinez is on sideline due to injury. Harry Maguire has stepped up and given the Red Devils excellent performances in his place.

Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has been in force to rely on Jonny Evans, 35, and Victor Lindelof. Raphael Varane is having trouble getting consistent playing time since it seems that ten Hag has blocked him out.

Perfect Option

Due to United’s center-back position, ten Hag believes Leny Yoro is the ideal long-term answer. And will have to turn to the transfer market to attempt to remedy his team’s issue.

Manchester City, the reigning European champions. Had their eye on Lille’s promising young defender Yoro as well, but the Red Devils have gained an advantage over their rivals in the city by signing the 18-year-old defender without delay.

Le10Sport via TeamTalk reports that Manchester United and Lille have begun preliminary negotiations for Yoro’s January transfer. The French club is hesitant to sell, but they are aware that this deal has the potential to bring in a sizable sum of money. According to Transfermarkt, the young player is worth £15 million, but Man Utd would need to spend more to complete a move.

Lille is aware that Yoro is in pursuit by a number of parties. So they won’t be in a rush to settle on a price. The teenage defender is also being in pursuit by PSG and Bayern Munich, so United has competition.
