Dad reveals Real Madrid trying again for Cruzeiro star Lucas Silva

Cruzeiro midfielder Lucas Silva is back in the sights of Real Madrid.

Marca says Asier Illarramendi's prospective departure to Athletic de Bilbao could pave the way for Lucas Silva to join Real Madrid.

Athletic are willing to go to €20 million to sign Illarramendi.

The European champions are now hoping to get the Silva deal done as soon as possible, because selling Illarra would leave the squad a man light in the middle of the park, particularly with Luka Modric still out.

Silva's father, Miguel Vieira, revealed: "Luiz Rocha (the agent of Lucas Silva) called me today and told me that negotiations with Real Madrid are revived but refused to give me more details."
