Man United set to miss out on £50m Top defender and ‘potential Martinez partner’ as he moves closer to Real Madrid switch



Man United set to miss out on £50m Top defender and ‘potential Martinez partner’ as he moves closer to Real Madrid switch

Manchester United’s desire to strengthen at centre-back has just hit another blow with a £50m target agreeing to a move elsewhere.

This summer, Ineos must be growing impatient as all of its targets are either too costly or have other travel plans.

Jarrad Branthwaite has already shown to be too costly, as Everton has shown by refusing to negotiate a better deal or lower their £70 million asking price.

A move for Jean-Clair Todibo has also been declared unlawful by UEFA since Ineos is the owner of both Manchester United and Nice. As a result, new goals are getting priority, but it looks like United is about to lose out on one more goal.

Leny Yoro agrees to Real Madrid move
One defensive target who fans would’ve loved Manchester United to sign this summer is Lille’s Leny Yoro, however, there was always a feeling this move would be tricky to complete.

This is because the 19-year-old Frenchman was believed to always favour a move to join Real Madrid, and that is exactly what seems to be happening.

According to a report from the French outlet, Sports Zone, Yoro has now reached an agreement with Los Blancos.

It’s then added that the teenager only wanted Madrid and he may even wait a year to complete his move in the case that the Champions League winners can’t make a move this summer, with his £50m price tag likely to cause some problems.

It is mentioned that United, Liverpool and Bayern are still pushing in the hopes that Yoro changes his mind, although that looks rather unlikely.

He’ll be playing with several of his future French international teammates there and has the chance to follow in the footsteps of Raphael Varane, who Madrid views him to be a regen of.

If Ineos are switched on they’ll have seen this coming and still have several options to recruit this summer.

Names such as Riccardo Calafiori of Bologna and Goncalo Inacio of Sporting Lisbon are still available and would be excellent additions.

It’s time for Ineos to get a move on though with pre-season only a couple of weeks away
