Liverpool blow as £40m star is now prepared to agree Manchester United move – Report

Leny Yoro France

Man Utd and Liverpool are consistently linked with Leny Yoro and the latest update is positive for the Old Trafford club.

Yesterday, we covered a story (via CO) claiming that the player has a contract offer from the Anfield side, but prefers to move to Real Madrid.

Transfer: Deal close – Man Utd press to secure versatile player signing

As per today’s version of The Daily Star (news image provided below), the Red Devils have made a final bid for Jarrad Branthwaite worth £43m but Everton are still demanding £70m.

Therefore, Man Utd have turned to Leny Yoro and made the Lille center half their ‘leading target’ to reinforce the central defense.

As per the report, the French starlet, who will be out of contract next year, is valued at around £40m and is keen on moving to Old Trafford.

The figures mentioned in the foreign media are much higher than the one stated in the British media.

Last night, we covered a report via Record claiming that Lille are looking to get a fee of £59m (70 million euros) for the teenage sensation.

At the age of 18, Yoro is already a regular starter in the top flight of French football and last season, he helped Les Dogues keep twenty clean sheets in all competitions.

As per the data gathered by The Athletic, he likes to operate as the last man standing at the back, prefers short passing and is good at ball-carrying.

Man Utd need a solid partner with Lisandro Martinez in the central defense and it would be a coup if they can beat Liverpool to the signing of Yoro despite no Champions football next season.
