Real Madrid may look to sign Lucas rather than Neymar

Posted on March 17, 2012 by admin

According to the newspaper “Estado” Real Madrid are keen to sign Sao Paolo`s 19 year old star Lucas. This would be instead of hunting for the services of another young Brazilian, Neymar of Santos.

Neymar had been heavily linked with the Madrid giants, but also with Barcelona. Neymar, however, has this week said “I want to stay here for a little longer. I said I1ll stay until 2014.” He has been advised by the Brazilian coach to move to Europe to improve his game but his friend Ronaldo has advised patience, so it looks as though Madrid will need to look elsewhere.

Many believe it was Lucas, and not Neymar, who was the outstanding player in the under 20`s World cup, scoring a hat-trick in the final against Uruguay.

Lucas has a contract until 2014 with a transfer clause of 80 million euros and Sao paolo have already rejected an offer of 25 million from Inter Milan. Even with some hard negotiating, he will not be cheap, but is thought to want a move to Europe.
