Benfica's David Luiz Intrigued By Possible Move To Real Madrid - Report

The rising young defender expressed his interest in a possible move to Spain, but assured fans that he is content at Benfica...
Marca reports that Benfica defender David Luiz has expressed a passing interest in moving to Real Madrid, with market rumours having recently tied the youngster to a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I am happy at Benfica; I do what I love and they treat me very well. If Real Madrid were to call? I am a Benfica player, but in life everything ends and there are people who can resolve such matters for me. What makes me happy is doing what I love."

Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is reportedly in the market for a central defender, as Maicon's signing from Inter looks to have struck an impasse, and Luiz's projection as a rising star and his versatility to play as both a central defender and a left-back make him a viable option for Los Blancos.

With respect to playing in the Spanish Primera Division, the 23-year-old Brazilian expressed his interest in following in the footsteps of current Benfica team-mates who did the same in their careers. "I would love to be able to learn from an experience like that which Pablo Aimar and Javier Saviola had."

Luiz confessed that Madrid attacker Kaka is someone he admires, not just as a player but as a person. "Kaka is my favourite player and a person who inspires me, not just for the great player he is, but for who he is."

But as for his future playing alongside the Brazilian talisman, Luiz expressed an even keel. "I am calm; everything happens with God's will."
