Manchester United are linked with numerous proven quality players but reports suggest that they are also in the hunt for talented young starlets.
According to Foot Mercato, top European clubs are linked with young French international and Lyon playmaker Mathis Rayan Cherki.
The French outlet have claimed that Manchester United are so impressed with the youngster that they are under his spell. Furthermore, it is mentioned that the Red Devils have even launched first moves to sign the 15-year-old starlet.
Transfer: Deal close – Man Utd signing could be agreed imminently
In all honesty, I have never heard of the player before but if the report covered by Foot Mercato is anything to go by then Cherki could be one of the best teenagers in the world.
The French source claim that his name has been associated with European giants like Juventus, AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Ajax, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. He is regarded as above all other youngsters in the country and praised as ultra promising and ultra talented.
Foot Mercato claim that Cherki is a versatile player and as per Transfermarkt, he is a central attacking midfielder, who has also played as a right winger and as a center forward as well.
Back in September 2018, he netted a goal against Man City in the UEFA Youth League to become the youngest ever scorer in the competition.
From the youtube videos, one can observe that Cherki is very skillful, he likes to take on defenders and dribble past them and he can strike the ball well. He will be able to sign a professional contract once he turns 16 on August 17 and it will be intriguing to see where he ends up.
