What should Real Madrid do with Lucas Silva?


Since the last 17th of April, Lucas Silva has not played any match with the Real Madrid t-shirt. The Brazilian midfielder has been training during this time with Los Blancos, after spotting his heart condition, detected last summer. Now it’s the moment to find a solution for his future because it looks like he will not play any minute with Zidane.

Lucas Silva was given on loan last year to Olympique Marseille and he did not triumph at the Ligue 1 because he did not have many minutes. The Brazilian midfielder is only 23 years old and Real Madrid signed him in 2015 for an amount of €13M from Cruzeiro. Now that we have arrived to the winter transfer market, there are unknown questions about his future. It’s very likely that Lucas Silva could go on loan this winter and Los Blancos might try to sell him when the season ends. Therefore it will be necessary to see which teams want his services for this season.

It would be the best option for him, since he does not seem to enter in Zidane’s plans for this year. Real Madrid have several midfielders in the squad and Lucas Silva may not play any official minute with Los Blancos. Besides, after several months without playing any competitive match, it will be difficult to recover the pace. The most important thing for Real Madrid is that if they let him go on loan to another team, he should have continuity because he needs to be fit again.

Lucas Silvas has not had success at Real Madrid and Florentino should find a solution. Real Madrid have many options with Kroos, Modric, Kovacic, Isco, James and Casemiro. Lucas has not played for a long time, so it would be a good idea to find him a team where he can enjoy some minutes. Since his arrival to Real Madrid, the Brazilian midfielder has only played 8 games in the starting 11 and four in the Champions League.
