Lucas moves to Marseille on loan

Favre expects ‘special test’ for Dortmund when they face Liverpool in pre-season

Real Madrid midfielder Lucas Silva will spend the 2015/16 season on loan in France with Olympique de Marseille.

The 22-year-old Brazilian only signed for Los Blancos in January, but with playing time limited in the Spanish capital he will look to get some minutes under his belt in Ligue 1.

"Ready for a new and exciting challenge in Marseille," wrote the defensive midfielder on Twitter.

Marseille are in Ligue 1 action on Friday, when they will take on Guingamp away at Stade du Roudourou.
