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."

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.

Sterling Case For Leaving 'Bigger' Club

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
