Report: Lucas Silva to Marseille

Lucas Silva will reportedly join Marseille on loan from Real Madrid and play under new Coach and Madrid legend Michel.

Michel, veteran of more than 400 games for Los Blancos, was recently appointed by the Ligue 1 club to replace Marcelo Bielsa, who resigned after the first game of the season.

Marca reports Silva will spend a year in France after Michel asked Madrid for the Brazilian, signed in January but out of favour under Rafa Benitez.

Both the player and the club are said to be in favour of a move to Marseille, believing it to be the best option for the long-term.
