Kylian Mbappe, Alphonso Davies & Leny Yoro top Real Madrid's summer 2024 wishlist
Real Madrid are looking for defensive reinforcements
Real Madrid will be going in for some big names in the summer transfer window 2024. It has been reported that Alphonso Davies and Leny Yoro have been informed that if they want to transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, they should not sign additional deals with the teams they play for.
The focus of most discussions about Real Madrid’s summer plans has been on Kylian Mbappe, who is most likely to join the team for free from Paris Saint-Germain. According to MARCA, Madrid’s money is expected to be less devoted to defensive upgrades because most of it will go towards paying Mbappe’s wages, signing-on fees, and incentives.
Davies of Bayern Munich are still Madrid’s top target at left back, but Yoro, an 18-year-old from Lille, has quickly become one of their preferred centre-back possibilities.
Although Davies and Yoro’s contracts expire in 2025, it has been stated that Madrid will only be able to pay for them the remainder of the season if they reject the offers from their teams to extend. Should both players reach the last year of their agreements, Madrid might be able to sign them for a reduced price.

Madrid’s new obsession with Yoro is partly a result of their success with other young French players, such as Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni, who were brought to the Spanish capital from Ligue 1 at an early age and went on to become big stars.
If a fresh deal is not agreed upon in the upcoming months, Los Blancos anticipate Lille to lower their €60 million asking price for Yoro. Yoro remains bound by the provisions of the contract he signed with Lille when he became a professional at sixteen.
Yoro is also a target for PSG, but Madrid feels they have the advantage because of their established reputation in the league and track record of developing young players.
