Real Madrid have decided to send Lucas Silva on loan so he can keep growing at a team where he has plenty of minutes of play.
Many La Liga sides had asked for a loan, but it seems like the most probable destination for the Brazilian is the Premier League, as three British clubs are reportedly willing to bid high for signing him.
Website Caughtoffside.com has claimed Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are interested in signing the 22-year-old, who arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu back in January.
However, these clubs seem to seek a permanent transfer, and Madrid are only considering a loan move for now.
The fact that Silva has a non-EU passport is an obstacle for his stay at Real Madrid, as Los Blancos already have reached the limit of three foreign players: Danilo, James Rodriguez and Casemiro.
Plus, there are four players ahead of him in the fight for a spot in the starting eleven: Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro and Asier Illarramendi.
Should Illarramendi leave, Silva could have options of staying at Madrid if any of the foreigners or himself gets an EU passport. However, that seems highly unlikely to happen.
