The Ligue 1 side want to get the maximum fee from the sale of the 18-year-old defender, whose preference is to move to Real Madrid.

As per the Madrid based news source, Yoro has received offers from Man Utd, Liverpool and French giants, Paris Saint-Germain.

His response to all the suitors is that he wants to play at the Bernabeu.

The dilemma for the Los Blancos is the high asking fee. Lille have slapped a price tag of £59.2million (70 million euros).

For Real Madrid, the maximum limit is 40 million euros and they even have the intention of lowering the amount to around 30-35 million euros.

It will be fair to say that the £59.2million demanded by Lille is an exorbitant price for a teenager, whose contract will expire in an year.

The Les Dogues cannot afford to lose a multi-million pound asset for free after twelve months, so, they may have to give in to Yoro’s demands and let him join Madrid for a discount.

We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds and will keep you updated.
