Marseille are weighing up the possibility of ending Lucas Silva’s loan spell at the club early and sending him back to parent club Real Madrid.

Brazilian midfielder Lucas Silva, who moved to Real Madrid from Cruzeiro during the last winter transfer window, joined Marseille on a season-long loan in August.

Although he featured prominently at the start of his loan, Silva has fallen out of favour at the Ligue 1 club. He has not started a match since November 8.

According to L’Equipe, Marseille have been disappointed with the 22-year-old midfielder and are even considering returning the youngster to Real Madrid before the transfer window slams shut on February 1.
