The 18-year-old central defender’s current deal with Lille will expire next year.

The RMC Sport journalist has mentioned that the Ligue 1 side have offered him fresh terms but he has not put pen to paper as yet and the trend is not towards ‘extension’.

Yoro is now represented by super-agent Jorge Mendes, the same as been confirmed by German journalist, Florian Plettenberg.

The Sky transfer expert claims Man Utd have observed the player closely for some time and the bosses at Old Trafford are impressed but know they face heavy competition to sign him.

As per a recently report covered by Le10Sport, Lille want to take advantage of the bidding war and have asked for a huge fee of 90 million euros (£77.4m).

In the current campaign, Yoro has been one of the best defenders in the French league. So far, he has started 16 games, netted two goals and helped the team keep 10 clean sheets.

Ten Hag’s team has been terrible in the defensive third this season mainly due to persistent injury concerns and inconsistent performances.

In your view, should Man Utd offer £77.4m to sign Leny Yoro?
