Cherki Renewed His Lyon Contract Until 2023
Lyon announced this Monday that Rayan Cherki had renewed his contract until June 2023. Real Madrid and Man Utd were interested in signing the player.
At just 16, Rayan Cherki’s name was being linked with a move away in the next transfer window because several clubs like Manchester United and Real Madrid had noted his name down.

However, the French press leaked that Lyon were trying to renew his contract to scare off United and Madrid.
This Monday, the French club announced the extension of his contract until June 2023. Lyon will therefore have one of France’s best young talents for at least another three seasons.
Cherki made his debut for the Lyon first team on 19th October 2019 against Dijon. Since then, he has played in 12 matches and scored a total of three goals.
