Manchester United boosted in pursuit of Lucas Silva

Published Add your comment

Real Madrid's failure to land Brazilian ace Lucas Silva could see him move to the Premier League in January, according to the Daily Star.

The Spanish giants have been linked with the midfielder for some time now, however it has been suggested that they have been unable to match Cruzeiro's asking price for the player. 


In fact, it appears that Madrid have offered as much as €12m for the player's services, but his club are holding out for something in the region of €15m. 

Real boss Carlo Ancelotti appears to be on the lookout for a midfield addition in the January transfer window, with Croatian ace Luka Modric currently out on the sidelines. 

And, with the duo of Sami Khedira and Asier Illaramendi facing uncertain futures at the club, it appears that they want Silva to replace the potential void at the club.

With Madrid seemingly struggling to agree a deal for the talented star, it now seems that a move to England's elite division could be on for the player in the upcoming transfer window. 

Premier League interest 

He's certainly not short of admirers, with as many as three Premier League clubs interested in landing him in the near future. 

Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal have all been credited with interest in the 21-year-old, but it remains to be seen as to whether any of the clubs step up their interest in him over the course of the next month. 

There's no doubt about it, Silva would only improve the options at the three clubs if he completed a move to England next month. Manchester United, despite signing Ander Herrera and Daley Blind this past summer, seem intent in adding to their midfield once again in 2015 as they go in search of improvement under Louis van Gaal. 

Arsenal and Liverpool, meanwhile, have both struggled in the middle of the park in recent time, and the youngster would no doubt help the two clubs as they go in search of climbing the Premier League table in 2015.
