Real Madrid, the La Liga champions, are reportedly interested in signing Rayan Cherki, a teenage French sensation, in a Bosman transfer in 2023. Rayan Cherki is the subject of interest from Real Madrid over a possible Bosman move in the summer of 2023, according to Spanish outlet Defensa Central. The French sensation is in the final year of his contract with Lyon. Rayan Cherki has sparked interest in youth football in recent years, with many considering him the best academy product from the French club since Real Madrid legend Karim Benzema. The 18-year-old attacking sensation joined Les Gones from Saint-Priest in 2010 and quickly advanced through the Ligue 1 club’s youth ranks. Cherki broke into Lyon’s first-team squad at the age of 16 and has made significant progress since then. In 63 appearances for Lyon, the French prodigy has nine goals and ten assists. However, he faces an uncertain future at the Groupama Stadium as he enters the final year of his contract, with Real Madrid taking notice of his situation. The reigning La Liga champions are well-known for their constant efforts to strengthen their youth and reserve teams before they become pivotal figures for the first team. Such a vision has attracted Real Madrid players such as Vinicius Jr. and Federico Valverde, among others. It’s not surprising that they want to keep investing in young talent now that their formula is working so well. Getty Images embed code Cherki has thus emerged as a viable Real Madrid target. And, while the teenage French sensation has not been a prolific finisher for Lyon, he has the potential to transform his career under the tutelage of an experienced manager like Carlo Ancelotti. With Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio’s futures at the Santiago Bernabeu uncertain, Cherki could be a long-term offensive solution for Real Madrid. According to recent reports, the 18-year-old is willing to join Los Blancos if the opportunity arises. Lyon will continue to try to sign him to a new contract. However, if Cherki remains on his current contract at the end of the year, Real Madrid will most likely open talks to reach a pre-contract agreement, with a Bosman move in the 2023 summer transfer window on the cards.
