Liverpool, Tottenham Target’s Attitude Displeases PSG as Surprise Move to Dortmund Looms

In recent weeks, Olympique Lyonnais star Rayan Cherki has attracted interest from major European clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool, and Tottenham Hotspur. However, it seems the 20-year-old won’t be staying in France or heading to England.

According to a recent report from L’Equipe, PSG made an initial offer to Les Gones of €15 million plus an additional €3 million in bonuses. However, Lyon rejected this proposal because it insisted on including a significant sell-on clause in any potential deal.

Moreover, a report from the French media outlet this past weekend revealed that Borussia Dortmund had swooped in as a surprise candidate to land the player.

L’Equipe has followed up this report with more information as they revealed that the player should sign with Dortmund. Additionally, the 20-year-old refused PSG at the last moment, an attitude that the club did not appreciate and attributes to the player’s entourage.

Rumors suggested Cherki would make the jump to a big club this summer. Still, it appears he has chosen to take a smaller step in his development by joining a club renowned for nurturing young talent. In a few years, when he feels more prepared, Cherki may consider transferring to a more prominent club, such as PSG or a Premier League team.

  1. PSG is a more prominent team than Dortmund? Really? Bundesliga is a much better league than Ligue 1. It’s more exciting to watch, has more goals etc. The level of competition is generally better to watch in the Bundesliga than in Ligue 1. Dortmund is much more renowned for player development than PSG. The only reason why players go to PSG is for the pay. That’s the only advantage PSG has over BVB. Glad Cherki chooses his development over finance.
