Real Madrid have announced that Lucas Silva will go back to Brazil to play in his former club Cruzeiro. Los Blancos have made public an announcement in their website where they spread the news. Silva will be given on loan for a year and a half to the Brazilian club.
After several months of a nightmare, Lucas Silva can finally play football. The Brazilian was training with Real Madrid but he didn’t have the rights to play in La Liga, so he was apart from the rest of his team-mates. Last summer, the doctors detected a heart condition, so his transfer to Sporting Lisbon was interrupted. Since then, Lucas Silva has been monitored and taken care of, but now he’s able to play football again.
The Brazilian midfielder left Real Madrid in the summer of 2015 to play with Olympique Marseille, trained by Míchel, former Los Blancos players. His stage at Marseille wasn’t very successful and Lucas Silva only played 22 games with the French team. The year after he went back to Real Madrid with the intention to find a new team. The opportunity of going to Lisbon pop up, but the medical test blew up the chance.
Now Lucas Silva will have the opportunity to play again with his former club, where he stayed until 2014, when Real Madrid paid €13M to get him on board the project. With Cruzeiro, Lucas played 5 full seasons until signing for Los Blancos. With Real Madrid he only appeared in 8 games in La Liga, without showing enough quality to stay in the team. Carlo Ancelotti tried to put him in the pitch several times, but he couldn’t adapt his way of playing to Real Madrid in such a small time. It doesn’t matter if he succeeds or not, the most important thing is that Lucas Silva can play football again. And these are already good news.
