Real Madrid favourites to sign Leny Yoro, PSG and Chelsea remain in the race

According to Fabrizio RomanoReal Madrid are currently favourites to sign highly-rated Lille OSC centre-back Leny Yoro (18). 

After a first full season in Ligue 1, Yoro is expected to leave Les Dogues this summer. He has quickly asserted himself in a Lille side that are pushing to achieve UEFA Champions League football next season, whilst he has also curried favour with France U21 manager Thierry Henry, who will be hoping to count on the young centre-back at this summer’s Olympics. 

However, that may not be the case, especially in the event that he joins Real Madrid, who have made it clear that they will not release their players for the competition. A move to Los Blancos remains the most likely option for Yoro, according to Romano. Aware of significant interest arriving in the summer, Paris Saint-Germain tried to get a deal done in January but failed to do so. PSG are still pushing strongly to bring Yoro to the Parc des Princes, whilst Chelsea are also closely monitoring the situation, but it is Real Madrid who are leading this race.
