Celta Vigo among candidates to land Cheryshev in January


Denis Cheryshev will most likely leave Real Madrid on loan next January, since he needs to get minutes of play in order to develop his game and secure his place in Russia’s squad for next summer’s European Championship.

Both the club and the player believe that a loan in the winter transfer market is the right decision. And many clubs have already shown big interest in landing the winger.

Valencia, Villarreal and Sevilla were the main candidates to sign Cheryshev last summer, and they are still the top options. However, they have a new competitor that could seduce the Russia international: Celta Vigo.

The Galician side are one of the strongest teams in La Liga this season. They are impressing with their attractive style and they are currently fighting with Barcelona and Real Madrid for the top position in La Liga.

The Azulgranas might sign Nolito, their biggest star, in the winter transfer market, so Celta have targeted Cheryshev as the ideal replacement.

Yet, the fact that Celta don’t play European competition this season will be a handicap for them. Cheryshev wants to get Champions League experience, and that he will only get by choosing Valencia or Sevilla.
