MADRID (AP) Real Madrid has presented its latest signing, Brazilian Lucas Silva, to hundreds of cheering fans at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

The 21-year-old midfielder had early Monday passed a medical exam and signed a contract through June 2020 before acknowledging the applause and saying Madrid had impressed him.

"I felt butterflies in my stomach as I stepped on the field," Silva said. "I stood in front of all the titles, the cups won, and felt emotional."
