Lucas Silva open to loan move from Real Madrid
The Brazilian believes a spell away from the Santiago Bernabeu could help his first-team prospects in the long term.
Real Madrid midfielder Lucas Silva admits he could be tempted by a loan move following reports linking him with Porto.
The 22-year-old joined Madrid from Cruzeiro in the January transfer window, but has so far been unable to secure regular first-team action at the Santiago Bernabéu. A number of reports suggested that Madrid are ready to farm the Brazilian out on loan next term, with Porto allegedly sitting in pole position to secure Lucas Silva's services. He was quoted in GOAL: "I was astonished with the news about a potential loan move to Porto. I have not heard anything about it. I have a contract with Real Madrid and I want to fulfil it. I have already had opportunities and I think I have the ability to be in the team and to play. But a loan move could be a good option."
