Yoro on his way to United?

Manchester United have been handed a big boost in signing Lille defender Leny Yoro this summer, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The 18-year-old is expected to be sold by the French outfit with his current contract expiring at the end of next season.

He has his sights on joining Real Madrid but as things stand, Los Blancos are reluctant to meet the €60 million price tag.

The European champions clearly don't want to pay more than €30m and this could play into the hands of the Red Devils.

United are prepared to pay a figure close to the asking price and it is claimed that Yoro may eventually change his stance.

The youngster is unlikely to wait for Madrid for long and would consider a move to either United or Paris Saint-Germain.

The Red Devils are currently in negotiations with Everton for Jarrad Branthwaite, but they could sign another centre-back too.

Yoro is considered as a unique market opportunity for United.
