Lucas may leave Liverpool

The Brazilian ace is desperate to revive his international career and is in need of more first-team action.

“I consider that I play a lot, but the internal competition is very high,” Lucas told Folha.

“The situation doesn’t worry me right now because my objective has always been to be playing in order to be back with the national team.

“Once the season is over I will see what the best option is for me. Everybody wants to be playing in the World Cup and I will push to have this chance.

“You have to play all the time if you want to be called up.”
