Chelsea transfer news: Lucas Moura keen to join the Spanish champions

Chelsea target Lucas Moura has admitted that playing for Real Madrid would be a dream and that his parents have already made visits to Spain as guests of the club.

The Brazilian playmaker’s club Sao Paulo admitted that they have rejected offers from clubs throughout Europe and that the Blues were the closest after submitting a bid of over £30million.

Real coach Jose Mourinho recently watched the talented 19-year-old play for Brazil against Denmark and Moura is seemingly flattered with the interest the Spanish champions are taking in him.

“Wearing the Real Madrid shirt is a dream,” he told Brazil’s TV Globo channel.

“For now I’m focused on Sao Paulo. Nothing is certain, my parents visited Spain with my agent who knows a lot of the presidents and they were their guests.”
