Cruzeiro defender Jonathan Cicero: Real Madrid move ideal for me

Cruzeiro defender Jonathan Cicero wants a move to Spain this year.

Cicero has again spoken of Real Madrid's interest, which he revealed before Christmas, and also confirmed an approach from Atletico.

He said: "I can confirm that yes, there was contact from Real Madrid for me to join the Spanish team. Even Atletico directors contacted the president of Cruzeiro, but I do not know what went wrong as the negotiations ended up falling through.

"But perhaps something else could happen in June ..."

Cicero added: "Right now, for Brazil the right-back position is very well covered with Dani Alves and Maicon, but if I played for Real Madrid, a team whose games are shown all over the world, I would likely be called by Dunga.

"With Cruzeiro, it is much more difficult."
