Real Zaragoza winger Savio has revealed he hopes to return to former club Flamengo later in his career.

The former Real Madrid man has been a revelation since joining Zaragoza in the summer of 2003 and has been an ever-present for the Aragon-based outfit this term.

However, the 31-year-old harbours a desire to return to his native Brazil and pull on the shirt of Flamengo who he represented in his younger days.

The Brazilian side are currently in the doldrums and were beaten 6-1 by rivals Sao Paulo recently and Savio admits he is hurt by their predicament.

"I follow everything that happens at Flamengo and I am very sad at what is happening with the team, their situation hurts me," he stated.

"It's not good to lose 6-1 against Sao Paulo. I hope that they can recover soon.

"I don't even want to think about the possibility of seeing Flamengo in the Second Division, I can't imagine a situation like that.

"It would be tragic if something like that happens, the team has to remain in the Premier Division.

"I spent ten years at Flamengo so I have a lot of feelings for that club and I would like to have the chance to go back to Flamengo some day.

"I have been away for a long time now, but I never forget about Flamengo.

"Flamengo have signed Romario and Edmundo in the past, so why can't I be the next reinforcement?

"I am under contract until June 30, 2007, and the season ends on June 15, 2006 so it will be difficult to leave before that date.

"To buy me out of my contract costs six million Euros (£4 million), but when I talk and think about Flamengo you never know.

"If I am offered the chance to go back to Flamengo I would have to think twice."
