Man Utd in talks with family for Lyon superkid Rayan Cherki

Manchester United are in talks with the parents of Lyon superkid Rayan Cherki.

Just 15, the midfielder doesn't turn 16 until August and is yet to commit to any pro terms.

Le 10 Sport says United have made a firm move for Cherki, with his parents having met with club officials. Earlier this season, family members were in England to meet with United and tour the Carrington training HQ.

Lyon are aware of the interest and are pushing hard for Cherki to agree terms.

OL president Jean Michel Aulas said, "He's going to be 16 years old. We are delighted with the discussions we've had with the family directly. We have a very personalised training and contract programmed to look to the future, but there is nothing signed. Personally, I am very confident because I trust the Cherki family."
