Real Madrid have done a tremendous job when it comes to identifying and signing the best young talents in world football in recent years. The likes of Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Eduardo Camavinga and Fede Valverde came in as teenagers and have gone on to become first-team regulars. It was not too long ago that they got a deal over the line for Endrick of Palmeiras. This summer, they have brought in Jude Bellingham and Arda Guler, and are being linked with Ivan Fresneda.

Thus, Real Madrid always have their eyes on rising talent. And one player that they have been linked with since the time of Zinedine Zidane as the manager of the club is Rayan Cherki.

Cherki is considered one of the biggest talents in French football right now and he is already showing glimpses of his brilliance for Lyon at the senior level. He is still just 19 years of age as well.

Unsurprisingly, other clubs are interested in the French wonderkid as well. As reported by Defensa Central (via The Hard Tackle), Newcastle United have tabled an offer of over €20 million for Cherki.

Newcastle United are a club on the rise. They are in the Champions League. Just this summer, they have signed Sandro Tonali.

Thus, it would be no surprise if the Magpies are able to pull off a deal for Cherki as well. In fact, it might be a very good place for him to take the next step in his career and Eddie Howe has shown the ability to improve players.

Chelsea are another club who have been lately linked with Cherki as well. Thus, if Real Madrid want to sign him, they might have to move quickly for the Lyon super talent’s signature this summer.
