Real Madrid are heavily active in the transfer market as they have already secured their long-awaited signing of Kylian Mbappe and also managed to sell Joselu Mato and their captain Nacho Fernandez.

Madrid’s president Florentino Perez is keen on building a squad that would dominate the football world for years and he is currently trying to sign France’s centre-back, Leny Yoro, who is likely to leave Lille this summer.

Apart from Yoro, Madrid have also set their eyes on Bayern Munich’s left-back Alphonso Davies whose current deal with the German clubs ends next season.

However, Madrid is not the only club who have their eyes on Davies as he is one of the best fullbacks in the world and thus, is wanted by a number of clubs. His future is still uncertain as talks with the Bavarians are currently on pause due to his participation in Copa America 2024.

Should his move to Madrid be completed, it will trigger a “domino effect” as the Whites will then have three left-backs, and they would be forced to sell at least one.

Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia are the current left-backs of Madrid and if Davies arrives, one of them will be sold out.

Davies’ transfer to Madrid is still a matter of doubt but Los Blancos’ interest in Yoro is real as after Nacho left the club, they are left with three centre-backs in the squad — Eder Militao, David Alaba and Antonio Rudiger.

As per Diario AS, the deal will be completed in the coming weeks as Madrid are hoping to have the Frenchman in their squad before the pre-season begins.

Yoro’s current with Lille will run out in 2025 and the French club wants to finalise the deal as soon as possible rather than losing him for free next season.
