Cheryshev ‘looking for Real Madrid exit’

Denis Cheryshev

Real Madrid winger Denis Cheryshev is looking for a way out of the club as he wants more first team football.

The youth team product has failed to establish himself at the Santiago Bernabeu after a couple of loan spells away from the club. He spent a season at Sevilla and then at Villarreal and hoped his return this season would see him feature more in the starting eleven at Real.

But the 24-year-old Russia international was used sparingly under Rafa Benitez and there are no signs things will change under new boss Zinedine Zidane.

The winger wouldn’t have a problem finding a new club should the 10-time Champions League winners be willing to allow him to exit at this stage – knowing a transfer ban is soon to come into force that prevents them signing new players until the the end of the 2016-17 season. claims Villarreal and Valencia are keen on him still with both having tried to lure him away last summer. Premier League outfit Liverpool are also believed to be interest in the midfielder.

Cheryshev hit the headlines this season after he featured and scored in the win in the Copa del Rey over Cadiz in November. Having picked up three yellow cards while on loan last season, he was infact meant to be sitting out the game through suspension. His inclusion in the team that night saw the club thrown out of the competition.
