CONFIRMED: Real Madrid coach Ancelotti asks after Cruzeiro star Lucas Silva

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed interest in Cruzeiro midfielder Lucas Silva. Ancelotti asked Tite, the former coach of Corinthians about the Brazilian player.

"He said to me that he's interested in signing and was wondering if he would play instead of Modric or Kroos," revealed Tite.

Manchester United and Chelsea are also interested in Lucas Silva.

One factor which plays in Madrid's favour is that the player has already expressed a preference in playing either in Spain or England over Serie A in Italy.
