Lucas Silva transfer

Chelsea could sign Brazilian midfielder Lucas Silva who is also a reported target of Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The 21-year-old midfielder plays for Brazilian club Cruzeiro and is thought to had been in negotiation with Real Madrid over a January switch, as the Los Blancos seeking for a replacement of Sami Khedira.


The youngster recently gave an interview where he expressed his desire to play for Real Madrid someday. He appeared even in the front page of Marca and is happy that his name has been linked with one of the biggest clubs in the world.

Now reports in Spain suggest that Chelsea are also showing a keen interest in him and would be looking to bring the attacking midfielder in the New Year.

It will be interesting to see what decision the youngster makes in the next few weeks, as although he would have some preference from Madrid, he could be persuaded by a good offer from the Premier League side.
