Lucas Silva: Only wants to leave Cruzeiro if it is a good deal for the club

The 21-year-old midfielder is regarded as one of the most exciting young talents in Brazil and is thought to have attracted widespread attention.

Speculation has suggested that Manchester United have been in contact over a possible move, while Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid have also been credited with an interest.

Silva admits that he is keen to impress anyone who might be watching from afar, but he is leaving such matters in the hands of his agents and will not worry too much about his future as he remains happy at Cruzeiro.

“I have the dream of playing in Europe, but I don't want to leave Cruzeiro the wrong way,” Silva, who is thought to be valued at around €10million, told Superesportes.

“I was developed by Cruzeiro. If it's not something good for me or Cruzeiro, it won't be bad to stay here."

Silva added to Globo Esporte: "My agents make me aware when there is something, when some teams talk or make contact. 

“They assure me they handle this and that I have to worry about what happens on the pitch. I have to do my work well at Cruzeiro so people will still talk about me outside Brazil."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
