Actual Madrid eager on Lyon teen sensation Rayan Cherki
Real Madrid are desperate to sign Lyon’s teenage sensation Rayan Cherki, according to Todo Fichajes.
While Zinedine Zidane’s men are the reigning Spanish champions and still have a chance to win the title this time around, few would deny that a major makeover is okay at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Zidane’s Real Madrid side dominated Europe year after year but made it through their group this season and are not among the favorites to win the competition.
Considerable investment in the squad is required and, according to Todo Fichajes, 17-year-old Lyon striker Rayan Cherki, who has played over 30 first-team games, is on his shopping list.

His release clause is reported to be € 35 million, which is a considerable price to pay for such a young player. Although Real Madrid paid £ 38.7million (via the BBC) for Vinicius Junior at the same age, it is certainly not out of the question for them to do so with Cherki.
