Lucas hints at PSG exit amid Man United talk

Paris Saint-Germain attacker Lucas Moura has suggested that he could leave his French club in this summer’s transfer window.

The Brazilian was reportedly on the verge of joining Manchester United from Sao Paulo in 2013, but ultimately decided to make the move to PSG.

The 24-year-old has made over 200 appearances since joining the Paris outfit, although he has been consistently linked with a move to the Premier League in recent transfer windows.

Man United are again being linked with Lucas in this transfer window, and the 36-time Brazil international has hinted that he would consider seeking pastures new ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

Lucas told Diario De Sao Paulo:

“In every transfer window there is always a lot of speculation. Actually, no offers have been made for me yet, nothing concrete. My agent has not told me about anything yet.

“I have a contract until 2020. If something materialises, we will sit and analyse it. Right now, nothing is happening. Regarding a return to Brazil, I am not thinking about that. I have objectives I want to reach in Europe.

“Leaving PSG for another European club could be a possibility for me but I am under contract and I have no offers in front of me at this moment. If something arrives, we will see what is best for me and for the club. Right now, though, I am doing well in France.”

Lucas scored 19 times in 52 appearances for PSG in all competitions last season, whilst he started 29 of his club’s Ligue 1 fixtures, appearing off the bench on eight further occasions.

The 36-time international footballer has struggled to hold down a regular position in the first XI, however, and this could be the summer that he decides to move on, with Man United possible suitors.
