MADRID (AP) Real Madrid presented its latest signing to hundreds of cheering fans at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on Monday as FIFA continued its probe into the club's transfer of minors.

Brazilian Lucas Silva, a 21-year-old midfielder, had earlier 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."
