2018 World Cup Hero Denis Cheryshevhaving exchanged his fourth decade in December, he can finally get to the RPL. According to, three Russian clubs want to acquire the Valencia winger – Spartak, Lokomotiv and Krasnodar. The source notes that the future of the 30-year-old legionnaire is far from Valencia, primarily due to Cheryshev’s frequent injuries, and his transfer cost is unlikely to pull even 5 million euros. Denis’s contract with the Spaniards is valid for more than a year – until the summer of 2022. Let us remind you that the pupil of Real Madrid spent his entire career in Example, and at home he played only for the national team.

News about the interest in Cheryshev on the part of one or another Russian club appeared before almost every year. For example, the same “Krasnodar” went to Denis last September. The Spanish media wrote about the negotiations, and then this information was confirmed by the winger’s father, the former forward of the Russian national team. Dmitry Cheryshev… But Cheryshev Jr. himself always emphasized: his priority is performing in Spain. Therefore, the native of Nizhny Novgorod remained in Valencia after the new head coach of the team Javi Gracia (whom we know from work at Rubin) said in a personal conversation that he was counting on him.

Five “crackers” in a row and the best reflected percentage in the league.

But now the situation has changed. Firstly, Denis hardly plays for Valencia – he spent only about 900 minutes on the field for the entire season. In addition, the winger has a low performance, even for such a small amount of playing time. Statistics of our legionnaire: 14 matches in Example and the Spanish Cup (11 at the base), zero goals and two assists. Unfortunately, as usual, Cheryshev missed part of the season for medical reasons. In November-December, he left for two weeks after contracting the coronavirus, and at the end of January received a muscle injury. Actually, because of her, he was not called up to the Russian national team for the first matches of the World Cup 2022 qualifying round.

Only on Saturday, March 20, Denis trained for the first time in two months in the general group of Valencia. It was expected that he will be included in the application for the match of the 28th round of Examples with Granada, but this did not happen. Javi Gracia explained why the club did not report the details of the Russian’s recovery to the media:

“During all this time, we did not have real data about Cheryshev’s injury, so we could not give exact answers to your questions. There was always the hope that he was about to return. This is how we saw the situation. But the return was constantly postponed. Now Denis is training in the general group, so he is one hundred percent ready. However, we will still assess his condition. “

The talented forward Konstantin Tyukavin also did not make it to the national team, but now he will replace the injured player.

Apparently, the management and coach of Valencia no longer see the Russian in the squad for the next season. Javi Gracia’s team is only 12th in the Spanish Championship and needs renewal and reinforcement in the summer. According to InStat, Cheryshev is only the fourteenth in the ranking of Valencian players. On average, in 90 minutes of playing in the Example, he makes 52 TTDs with 65% of success, delivers 2.0 hits (on target – 0.64), has 0.53 moments, and creates 0.85 moments for his partners. Performs 3.0 strokes, of which 1.59 are successful. In attack, 45% of martial arts wins. In general, numbers that do not boggle the imagination.

Russian top clubs (except, apparently, turned off from the fight for the winger “Zenith”) are not confused by the injury of the national team player. But it is curious that Spartak and Lokomotiv will either have to change the scheme for Cheryshev, or put Denis himself in an unusual position. Have Domenico Tedesco in the scheme 3-4-1-2 and Marko Nikolic in a 4-4-2 with a diamond in the center, there is no left attacking midfielder / winger. In this sense, Krasnodar is better prepared for Cheryshev’s appearance, especially considering the expected departure Victor Klasson

Denis named the most memorable moments of the home world championship.

After the 2018 World Cup, Russian fans have a positive attitude towards Denis. And it hardly changed, despite the fact that over the past year Cheryshev scored only one goal for the national team. It would be great if the Real Madrid graduate ended his career at home – in RPL there are not so many strong individual players.
