Here "will" replaces "would" because of structure.

If+sub+had+v3, sub+would have+v3.

Is sentence is (past tense). Then, future of this sentence will be also (past tense).
Eg; will past tense is would.

If you are wishing something or want to do in future or past, so you have to use '' would'' instead of ''will''.

Would is right because it is a futuristic sentence but its meaning is changed because of yesterday, "will" can use for only the next step future.
