Leny Yoro close to joining Real Madrid

Real Madrid are close to signing Leny Yoro from Lille, according to Todofichajes.

The 18-year-old French center-back has been a standout performer in Ligue 1 this season, and Real Madrid are looking to strengthen their defense following the long-term injury to David Alaba.

Yoro is a tall, athletic defender with good technical ability and a strong passing range. He is also a good tackler and has a good reading of the game.

Real Madrid are said to be willing to pay €25 million for Yoro, plus add-ons. Lille are open to a deal, but would prefer to sell Yoro outright rather than loan him with an option to buy.

Yoro is expected to sign a five-year contract with Real Madrid. He would be the first signing of the winter transfer window for the Spanish club.
