Manchester United (Manchester United) is ready to pay a large amount of money to reinforce its defense.
French media Le10 Sport reported on the 11th (Korea time), “Manchester United, which wants to strengthen its defense, began negotiations with Lille to recruit Lenny Yoro (18).”
Manchester United has been disappointing this season. Having played 20 matches in the Premier League, Manchester United has only gained 31 points with 10 wins, 1 draw and 9 losses, staying in eighth place.
Defensive instability is pointed out as the biggest problem. While Lisandro Martinez left due to injury, Jonny Evans, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof were injured in turns, failing to regain stability.
Recruitment of a new center back has emerged as a task. As there is a possibility that Raphael Varane, whose contract is set to expire this summer, is set to leave, the argument that a replacement should be hired as soon as possible is gaining weight.
Yoro has emerged as a strong candidate for recruitment. Despite his young age, Yoro has captured the attention of big clubs including Manchester United with his explosive flagship and smooth ball control. 헤라카지노주소
It has already established itself as a key defense in Lille. Yoro has scored three goals in 22 games across all competitions this season, drawing keen attention as a player who will carry Lille’s future.
He is considered one of the players who will lead the future of the French national team. Although he has not made the roster of the French national team yet, he is expected to make his A-match debut soon as he faithfully participates in the national team based on age.
It is inevitable to spend a huge amount of transfer fee to recruit him. According to the report, Lille reportedly asked Manchester United for 78 million pounds (about 130 billion won) for Yoro’s transfer fee.
Chairman Jim Ratcliffe has emerged as a variable in the negotiations. Le10 Sport said that Manchester United hopes Ratcliffe, who is also the owner of Nice, will have a positive impact on the negotiations.
If successful, he will become the fourth most expensive player in Manchester United’s history. Currently, Paul Pogba (£89 million), Antony (£86 million) and Harry Maguire (£80 million) are among the top players in Manchester United’s all-time highest transfer fee list.
