Hamburger SV defender Alex Silva set to make a return to Brazil- Bundesliga news

Hamburger defender, Alex Silva, looks all set to make a return to Brazil on a permanent basis during the summer transfer window. The player is currently on-loan at a Brazilian club, Sao Paulo, and could possibly be sold out to Flamengo for the 2011/12 season. Silva was loaned out to the Brazilian outfit last season after failing to impress the Red Shorts officials.

The player confirmed about Flamengo’s interest in acquiring his services for the upcoming season. He seemed pleased with the possible return to his homeland and was looking forward for a successful Brazilian journey. Silva, at the same time was disappointed for not being able to live up to the expectations of his German club. He wished to have made a comeback to the Hamburger squad from the next term but reckoned that he never deserved a place with his below par performances.

The Red Shorts sporting director, Frank Arnesen, told that the club were already looking to sell the 26-year-old as the player hasn’t been able to establish himself in Germany. He further added that if the deal doesn’t get through, the club would consider loaning out the player for yet another season.

In an interview to a local news paper, Arnesen added, "Our first priority is to sell him. The second option would be a further loan [deal]." It is believed that Hamburg would be pleased to sell the youngster for the asking price of 3.5 Million Euros.

Silva tied knots with Hamburger SV in 2008 and managed only 17 Bundesliga appearances before being loaned out to Sao Paulo in 2010. The centre back managed 21 league appearances last season for the Tricolor Paulista but hasn’t opened his account yet for the Brazilian outfit.

Silva made his Brazil debut in 2007 and has two international caps under his belt until now. The defender is yet to open his account for his country.

Hamburger SV will start their 2011/12 Bundesliga campaign against the reigning champions, Borussia Dortmund, on Friday August 5 at the Signal Iduna Park.
