Real Madrid loan Lucas Silva back to Cruzeiro

31 Jan 2017

Real Madrid have loaned Brazilian midfielder Lucas Silva back to former team Cruzeiro until June 2018, both clubs have confirmed today.

The 23-year-old was signed by Real from the Brasileiro Série A team in a 14m-euro transfer in January 2015, but has made just nine appearances for Los Blancos.

After half a season in Madrid, Silva was sent out on loan to Marseille for the 2015/16 campaign, playing 33 times in a disappointing stint in Ligue 1.

He had appeared set for a temporary switch to Portuguese side Sporting CP in the summer, before the detection of a minor heart issue scuppered the deal.

After a period out of action due to the problem – a cardiac arrhythmia – he was given the all-clear by Real doctors to resume training in October.
