There is interest, but they are aware that Silva has struggled a little at Molineux since his arrival at the club back in the summer of 2020.

Silva was thrust into the spotlight last season following the head injury to Raul Jimenez.

This term, minutes have been hard to come by following the Mexican’s return.

He has made 21 appearances in the Premier League so far, equating to just 544 minutes.

Madrid apparently want to be ‘cautious’ about the situation given his lack of playing time.

They will follow him and also Matías Arezo of Granada, and it remains to be seen if the giants will actually lodge a bid to sign him.

It would certainly be a real surprise if they did. But the report suggests he does fit the profile they are after.

The claim comes after there were reports about Silva’s future late last year.

Apparently Wolves officials had discussed the possibility of sending Silva out on loan.

That is something former Wolves midfielder Dave Edwards believes the player could do with.

Fabio Silva to Real Madrid would be a huge surprise

It is quite a surprise to learn that Real Madrid have interest in £80,000-a-week youngster Silva.

That they have followed him for some time clearly suggests he has major potential, and that maybe Wolves did well to land him.

Obviously things haven’t quite worked out as well as everybody had hoped so far for Silva.

But this term he has been showing signs of improvement, and he is still extremely young and inexperienced.

Perhaps a loan move could be the making of him. It would certainly interesting if that loan move was the Real Madrid.
