Real Madrid's need to sign a centre-back is no secret to anyone. Eder Militao tore his ACL in the very first match of the season and it is unclear how he will recover from that. David Alaba suffered a similar injury recently as well and has been ruled out for the rest of the campaign. Unquestionably, this is not a great situation for Los Blancos to be in.
A move for a centre-back does not seem to be on the cards this winter. But it would not be a surprise if Real Madrid sign one next summer.
They have been linked with a move of centre-backs in recent months. One of them seems to be on the radar of Liverpool as well though.
Liverpool plan to make bid for Real Madrid target
Yoro is 18 years of age and has already enjoyed a meteoric rise in the game. He has established himself as a starting centre-back for Lille.
The level of competition for Yoro's signature just goes on to show how impressive he has been. It would be no surprise if he makes his debut for the France national team soon.
It is expected to take a transfer fee north of €50 million to sign Yoro. There have been some rumours though that that figure could go as high as €90 million, an astronomical sum for a player yet to make 50 appearances at the senior level.
Yoro ticks a number of boxes Real Madrid look for when signing a player. Let's see if the club make their move for the French centre-back in the future.
