Premier League target keen to complete Bernabeu switch.
Highly rated Brazilian youngster Lucas Silva is keen to secure a move to Real Madrid according to Goal.com.
The 21 year old Cruzeiro midfielder is relishing the prospect of teaming up with Cristiaino Ronaldo and injuries suffered by Luka Modric and James Rodriguez, and the ongoing uncertainty about the future of Sami Khedira, could force Bernabeu president Florentino Perez into a January bid.
The Arsenal and Man United target hopes a move comes to fruition, stating;
“I’m happy with the news and also very surprised; it shows that people are recognising my work not only here in Brazil but also abroad.
“If it really does happen, because at the moment it’s only speculation, it would be very important for my family.
“It would be the realisation of dreams, comforts for everyone and maybe the time has arrived to return the favour to them.”
“Since I was small I’ve been following his games, from Manchester United and now much more at Real Madrid. He’s making history.
“I never imagined, never expected, that one day maybe something like this could happen; it would be a dream.
“Since I was small I have imagined many things. I never expected this could happen so quickly but all the dreams and goals that I’m achieving are thanks to God, and to play in Spain is another dream.”
Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti, who has seen his side go on an amazing 18 game winning streak, has confirmed interest in Silva.
