Lucas Silva, who is also wanted by Arsenal, has said that it would be a dream to play for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid have now emerged as the front runners for the capture of highly talented Lucas Silva as the Brazilian has said that he wants to play for Los Blancos in future.

Lucas Silva is one of the most sought after players of the transfer market at the moment as the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in signing him. The player, however, has said that playing for Real Madrid would be like a dream come true for him.

Speaking to Brazilian television channel SportTV, Lucas Silva said today that: “If a deal were struck with Real Madrid, it would be a dream come true.”

“I don’t know if they are going to suggest presenting me in the middle or at the end of the season, if I will stay for the Libertadores or not – I still do not know how it will happen. But it would be interesting for me to stay for the Libertadores and then introduce myself in pre-season with the rest, it would be.”

English Premier League sides Arsenal and Manchester United were also touted as the potential suitors of young Brazilian earlier but these comments of Lucas Silva have clearly put Real Madrid ahead of other clubs.

It was being reported in the Spanish media earlier this week that Real Madrid have made an initial contact with Cruzeiro and Lucas Silva has confirmed it that the Los Blancos have started the negotiations with his club.

Sergio Ramos hails Ancelotti: “He’s won all of us over”

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has hailed the impact of coach Carlo Ancelotti on recent success of Los Blancos.

Real Madrid have won 17 games in a row in all competitions now and Sergio Ramos feels that coach Carlo Ancelotti deserves the respect for such phenomenal success.

“Words cannot fully explain what he means to us – all of the praise and positive things we could say still are not enough. Every other day I find myself saying what a wonderful coach he is – I’m not doing it to appear nice, I mean it”.

“Ancelotti handles the dressing room to perfection; he understands every member of the squad and gets the best out of each and every one of us. He will take each of us to one side for a chat if there is a problem but most importantly, he extracts the very best from every player in the squad”.
