Manchester United continues to be linked with Leny Yoro, and recent reports suggest that a significant amount would be required to secure the defender’s signature this month.
Earlier in January, reports indicated that the Red Devils were in an advanced position compared to PSG in the race to sign the 18-year-old French talent.
Recent coverage from Le10Sport now suggests that Manchester United, Liverpool, and Manchester City are closely monitoring Yoro’s situation for a potential transfer.
Despite interest from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, RMC Sport journalist Daniel Riolo believes Yoro is unlikely to join PSG due to resistance from Lille. Riolo emphasized that only a “crazy fee” would compel Lille to consider selling.
“The door is closed, Letang has closed the door and Fonseca is holding. He is behind and blocking the door. They won’t let it go or it would have to be a totally crazy and disproportionate amount. That is clear.”
Le10Sport suggests that the speculated “crazy amount” could be a minimum of 90 million euros, a figure deemed excessive for a relatively inexperienced player like Yoro, especially considering he has only 18 months left on his contract.
With Manchester United struggling defensively this season, being the only team in the top half of the Premier League table with a negative Goal Difference, the need to reinforce the defense is evident.
The question remains whether they should consider a significant investment to secure Leny Yoro’s services before the transfer window closes this month.
