Lucas Silva still wants "dream" Real Madrid move

Cruzeiro midfielder Lucas Silva admits that it would be "a dream" to join Real Madrid.

Lucas Silva has insisted that he will remain committed to Cruzeiro, but conceded that he wants to secure a 'dream move' to Real Madrid.

The Brazilian midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to the Bernabeu in recent weeks, but Real Madrid have thus far failed to agree a deal with Silva's Brazilian club.

The 21-year-old is due to return to pre-season training with Cruzeiro on January 7, but it is understood that Los Blancos could make a move at the start of the month.

"I have to rejoin Cruzeiro training in January. There has been a lot of speculation and rumors about Real Madrid. In January, the transfer window opens in Europe and from there on, anything can happen," Silva told Globoesporte.

"When I say that the transfer window isn't open yet, I refer to the speculation. There are a lot of news and questions about Real Madrid. All I can say is that there's nothing definitive.

"I'm a Cruzeiro player, I had a great year and now anything can happen. [A move to Real Madrid] is a dream and I think it would be a step forward."

Cruzeiro reportedly value Silva in the region of £12m.
