Liverpool to rival Real Madrid, PSG in pursuit of €60 million teenage defender

Real Madrid have decided to sign a new central defender in the summer transfer window later this year, after having initially planned to do so in 2025.

The injuries to Eder Militao and David Alaba have exposed the lack of depth in the centre-back department, prompting Carlo Ancelotti’s side to enter into the market for a new central defender come summer.

And, as per reports, Lille OSC defender Leny Yoro has emerged as the preferred target for Los Blancos to reinforce the centre-half department.

The 18-year-old is enjoying a fine season in Ligue 1 and is attracting serious interest from Real Madrid and PSG, with his club slapping a €60 million price tag on him.

The fact that Lille are demanding €60 million for Yoro was already being seen as an impediment by Real Madrid.

To top that, now SPORT is reporting that Liverpool have also entered the race to sign the 18-year-old centre-back in the summer transfer window, further complicating matters.

With Virgil van Dijk not performing at his best this season and not getting any younger, it appears that the Reds are looking towards the future and have identified Yoro as a target.

Along with Liverpool, Real Madrid, and PSG, Bayern Munich are also interested in signing the 18-year-old.
