Real Madrid’s Lucas Silva Might Be Forced to Retire With Heart Condition

Real Madrid’s Lucas Silva Might Be Forced to Retire With Heart Condition

Real Madrid midfielder Lucas Silva could be forced to retire this summer after tests revealed he may suffer from a serious heart condition, according to reports in Spain.

The 23-year-old Brazilian under-21 international has been at Real Madrid since 2013, having arrived from hometown club Cruzeiro for a fee around £10 million.

He struggled to get into the Los Blancos starting line-up initially, and ended up on-loan to French side Marseille last season, and was expected to move on another one-year loan basis to Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon this summer.

But, according to Spanish newspaper AS, Silva failed the medical, with Sporting’s doctors finding signs of a heart condition which could force Silva to hang up his boots.

It’s thought Silva will now return to Spain for a second opinion, and to consult with his family and friends before making a decision.

But what a shame it would be for such a talented, promising player to have to retire so young.
