Real Madrid push to sign Cruzeiro star Lucas Silva in next 48hrs

Real Madrid are in advanced talks with Cruzeiro to sign Lucas Silva.

AS says a deal taking Lucas Silva to Real Madrid could be completed on Monday.

Cruzeiro, the Brazilian champions, will play their last game of the year against Fluminense at Mineirao. After the game, the players will go on their holidays (they have a month off) and that would allow time for Lucas Silva to find out where he will start 2015: Real Madrid or with his current club.

Brazilian sources believe he will go to Madrid. The European champions have offered €12 million but Cruzeiro are asking for €15 million. A compromise is expected to be comfortably struck.
