Lyon's Ryan Cherki has revealed his desire to play for Real Madrid amid reports linking him with a move away from the Ligue 1 side.

The young France teenager, who has been making headlines, recently emerged from the academy of Lyon, and he is already dreaming of playing for the Spanish giants. Cherki had already made six Ligue 1 appearances before the COVID-19 chaos brought the 2019-20 campaign to a halt and he is tipped to sign for one of the elite clubs in Europe as the likes of Anthony Martial, Samuel Umtiti and Karim Benzema have done in the past. The attacking midfielder didn't hide his ambition of playing for Los Blancos when asked where he would like to play in the future."At Real [Madrid]," he told Lyon's official channel. The 16-year-old, who has been really impressive for Les Gones, also said he hopes to win the Ballon d'Or in the future.
