Brazilian Starlet Lucas Moura Admits It May Have Been a Mistake to Snub Man United for PSG

Old Trafford target having second thoughts?

Brazilian star Lucas Moura admits he does not know if he has made the right decision by snubbing Manchester United for Paris St Germain.

United were ready to smash their £30.75m transfer record in the summer to sign Lucas from Sao Paulo but he rejected their overtures.

Big-spending PSG stepped in and sealed a deal for the forward in the summer in a transfer worth around £38m.

“Thiago Silva has told me a lot about the club and its facilities, and it will be nice to have him as my team-mate,” Lucas said.

“However, I have to admit that I do have a bit of fear about how things will pan out. I don’t know how well it will go.

“I am not thinking about money, but I am more concerned with whether my next destination will be the right one.”

Odd that Lucas Moura would make such a statement about his big money move to PSG, odder still given the 20 year old has still not actually made the move in question.

The young Brazilian is seeing out the season with Sao Paulo before completing his big money move to the Parc des Princes after the Ligue 1 side outbid Man United for his services.

Lucas Moura did go on to state that the presence of fellow countrymen Thiago Silva, Maxwell, Nene and Alex helped him opt for a PSG switch, seemingly unswayed by the raft of Brazilians plying their trade at Old Trafford, Anderson, Rafael and Fabio.

However the youngster will have been impressed with PSG’s early season form. Carlo Ancelotti’s side picked up their first Ligue 1 defeat on the weekend and still sit top of the table and with two wins from three games the French side have started well in the Champions League campaign.
