Man United transfer target Leny Yoro drops major hint for Old Trafford summer move

Manchester United are interested in signing young sensation Leny Yoro from LOSC Lille this summer.

They have tabled a £42 million offer for the teenager which the Ligue 1 outfit accepted.

United have yet to agree personal terms with Yoro, who reportedly wants to move to Real Madrid.

Yoro has now dropped a major hint in favour of a move to Old Trafford.

He publicly debunked a fake X account that claimed he was not interested in joining the Red Devils.

Yoro could be an excellent investment for the future

United are trying to outmanoeuvre Madrid by offering more money to Lille who are desperate to sell Yoro as he has entered the final year of his contract.

The Red Devils have made a compelling offer that balances Lille’s financial expectations with Yoro’s market value of £42m.

Yoro could play a pivotal role for United, especially after Raphael Varane’s departure.

INEOS are acting decisively in the transfer market which is thrilling from a United supporter’s perspective.

They have not given in to Everton’s astronomical demands for Jarrad Branthwaite.

They tabled a £50m proposal for the England international which is still £20m-30m less than the asking price.

A third bid of around £55m-£60m could really test Everton’s resolve and force them to sell Branthwaite.

Bayern Munich star Matthijs de Ligt is set for a move to the Theatre of Dreams. His transfer is independent of United’s pursuit of another top-quality centre-back.

Yoro represents a promising investment for United who are in the middle of an overhaul in their defence.

His blend of tactical awareness and potential makes him not just a short-term fix but a player capable of anchoring the defence for years to come.

The 18-year-old has established his reputation as a generational talent after a fantastic 2023/24 season.

He featured 32 times in Ligue 1 last campaign, making three clearances and 1.1 tackles per outing.

His impressive passing accuracy of 92.7% underscores his exceptional technical prowess at a remarkably young age.
