Real Madrid utilized Bosman’s law to bring in France’s ‘fresh gem’

Real Madrid, the La Liga winners, apparently wants to make a Bosman move in 2023 to get Rayan Cherki, the young French star.

Rayan Cherki is the subject of interest from Real Madrid over a potential Bosman move in the summer of 2023, claims Spanish news site Defensa Central. The wonderkid from France is now in the last year of his deal with Lyon.

In recent years, Rayan Cherki has raised eyebrows in age-group football. Many consider him to be the finest academy product from the French team since Real Madrid legend Karim Benzema. The 18-year-old offensive prodigy moved to Les Gones from Saint-Priest in 2010 and quickly rose through the ranks of the Ligue 1 club’s junior team. 


Cherki made his debut for Lyon’s first team three years ago at the age of 16, and he has advanced significantly since then. In 63 games for Lyon, the French phenom has nine goals and 10 assists. But as he approaches the end of his contract, he faces an unclear future at the Groupama Stadium, and Real Madrid has taken notice of his predicament.


The current La Liga champions have a reputation for working hard to improve their youth and reserve teams in order to develop players who can make an impact on the first squad. Such a perspective has attracted Real Madrid talents as Federico Valverde and Vinicius Jr. It should come as no surprise that they want to keep investing in new talent given how successfully their formula is working. 

Cherki has thus become a potential target for Real Madrid. The young French phenomenon can change his career under the direction of a seasoned coach like Carlo Ancelotti, despite the fact that he has not been a frequent contributor for Lyon in the final third.


As Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio’s futures at the Santiago Bernabeu are unknown, Cherki can be Real Madrid’s long-term attacking option. And according to recent sources, the 18-year-old is willing to join Los Blancos when the chance arises. 


He will continue to be pursued by Lyon for a new deal. If Cherki opts to stay on his present contract at the beginning of the year, Real Madrid will probably start negotiations for a pre-contract agreement, with a Bosman transfer possible in the 2023 summer transfer window.
