Lucas Silva Can’t still Play Football Due to a Heart Condition


Lucas Silva is living a nightmare. The Brazilian footballer is still away from the football grounds and he can’t train due to a heart condition the doctors spotted this summer. Two months after, Lucas Silva doesn’t know if he can play football again.

Real Madrid and Sporting Portugal agreed a deal to given on loan Lucas Silva with a buy option for the next year. The agreement was totally done and Lucas Silva travelled to Lisbon for the medical tests and the unveiling press conference. However, the doctors spotted a strange problem in the heart and after few more tests, the doctors advised against the signing of the Brazilian player.

In these two months, there have been a big secret about Lucas Silva’s physical condition. However, the Spanish newspaper Diario As published today that the Brazilian is living in Madrid but he can’t train. He is under medical control but he cannot come back to play football yet.

Real Madrid paid €13M to Cruzeiro in the Winter transfer window in 2015 after being one of the best midfielders in the Brazilian League. In his six months at Real Madrid he didn’t play many games and only appeared in eight games in La Liga under Carlo Ancelotti’s management. In the next summer, Real Madrid decided to give on loan Lucas Silva to Olympique Marseille.

The former Real Madrid player Míchel González was the coach and he had trust in improving his performance. However, his season in the French League was very disappointing. Lucas Silva played 22 games in Ligue One, only 11 of them in the starting eleven. He was losing his place in the team and finally the French club decided to not extend the contract. After that, Real Madrid found a suitable team for the Brazilian player, but his heart problems keep him away from football. Hopefully, he can come back eventually and show the good player he was in the Brazilian league.
