Lille defender Leny Yoro has hit back at suggestions on social media that he is not interested in a move to Manchester United.

Yoro made 32 appearances in the French top flight last season, scoring twice and keeping 15 clean sheets as Lille finished fourth, and established himself as one of the most promising young centre-backs in European football

Manchester United have lost the experienced Rafa Varane this summer after he decided that he would not be agreeing a new contract at Old Trafford – meaning Erik Ten Hag will need to sign an immediate replacement.

According to Sky Sports, a £42million bid has been agreed in principle with Lille for the teenager to join the Red Devils, as the French giants are ready to cash in on Yoro, 18, ahead of his contract expiring next year.

Reports in Spain insist that the player would prefer to sign for Real Madrid and they are happy to either negotiate a fee with Lille now or wait until 2025 and bring him over as a free agent, which is why Man United have not been able to seal a deal for the defender.

But Lille are thought to be pushing Yoro towards United with more money on the table but the decision will ultimately rest with the player.

On Tuesday night, an X account impersonating Yoro tweeted in response to the United development: ‘I don’t want you Manchester United. Leave me alone’.

But in response, Yoro, tweeted through his official account: ‘Fake account. You guys are psycho. Signal [report] this account.’

Yoro is a special talent and if Man United get the lad – he will be a very good addition to that back-line that is for sure.
