Lucas Silva teammates reveal Real Madrid move

Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all look set for disappointment as it has been confirmed they will miss out to Real Madrid in the signing of one of Brazil’s most promising young midfielders.

There has been no official announcement from the Santiago Bernabeu that a deal has been completed for the £12million-rated Lucas Silva, but his teammates have given the game away in recent interview with the Spanish press.

Louis van Gaal, Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have all been credited with an interest in the Cruzeiro midfielder, after he impressed for Brazil’s Under-20 side in a youth international competition in France a year or so ago.

However, there have always been strong rumours with regards to Real Madrid’s interest and it now appears as though Silva’s teammate, Mayke, has let slip that a deal is in place for the 21-year-old to make the switch to Spain.

“Being able to play in a team like Real Madrid is a dream of any player. We know he will go, but he still can’t imagine it,” he said in an interview with AS.

Silva is a versatile midfielder who is able to play in an advanced playmaker role, but he has looked most impressive anchoring the midfield and acting more as a deep-lying playmaker.

Of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, only the Emirates Stadium club currently have any pressing issues to recruit in that area, so perhaps it is they who are feeling the disappointment most keenly.
