Manchester United have put a big offer on the table for Lille defender Lenny Yoro, but he’s fully focused on getting to Real Madrid in any way possible.

That’s according to AS, who say while Manchester United’s bid is on the table, it’s not tempting the youngster to change his plans.

A report earlier this month stated Manchester United had made an out of market offer for Yoro, who is one of the rising stars of European football.

It was explained that they and Paris Saint Germain had made their move for him in an attempt to beat Real Madrid to his signature, with them refusing to rush into anything after focusing their efforts and money on Kylian Mbappe.

AS back that up today and state that Real Madrid still want Yoro but won’t be going out of their way to make it happen.

They feel they already have a spectacular squad at their disposal and so won’t be doing anything crazy to add to it for the time being.

That’s a stance they’re sticking to, even though PSG and Manchester United have ‘already made moves’ for him.

Indeed, the latter are ‘very serious’ about getting the youngster and have already put an offer on the table that is ‘very close’ to the €60m Lille are demanding for him.

That’s not swayed Real Madrid to make a bid themselves and they are continuing to insist they will only ever offer €40m as the youngster is out of contract next summer.

Thus, Lille could be tempted into accepting the offer from Manchester United, but then they’d have to convince Yoro, who steps on the brakes and insists he goes to Madrid. If he can’t do that this summer, he’ll spend another year in France and so on a free transfer next year.

This all feels like the Spanish newspaper hyping Real Madrid’s position, and it’s possible Manchester United’s effort has been exaggerated in order to build more drama.
