Man Utd push hard in formal talks to sign £60.4million player – Report

Leny Yoro France

Manchester United conceded 43 goals in the last Premier League campaign and this term, they have already let in 27 goals in 20 games.

The Red Devils should strengthen things at the back if they are to have any chance of finishing in the top four this season.

News – Man Utd will submit solid initial bid to sign £34.5million+ star – Report

According to Le10Sport, in the past month, Man Utd have held formal talks with LOSC Lille to sign Leny Yoro.

The Ligue 1 side want to hold on to their prized asset and have slapped an enormous and unrealistic price tag of £78million (90 million euros).

However, Man Utd have been persistent and pushed hard to speed up formal talks to sign Yoro and the Old Trafford outfit have received a response from the French side.

Le10Sport claim Man Utd will have to pay a fee of over £60.4million (70 million euros) to crack Lille and secure the 18-year-old defender.

The teenage sensation has made 21 appearances in all competitions this season and helped the Les Dogues keep 11 clean sheets.

Moreover, the tall center half has also found the net three times under the management of Paulo Fonseca.

Man Utd have a history of paying over the odds for signings and in all fairness, a fee of £60.4million is very a high for Yoro, who is yet to get a senior cap for France and has only featured in 30 games in the Ligue 1. What do you think?
