The young Brazilian Lucas Moura has signed a new contract with French giants PSG that will keep him at the club until 2019. It was though a move to Manchester United could have transpired this summer.

As reported by the PSG website, Moura said he was delighted to extend his contract, adding that playing in Paris was a source of great pride. “I hope to continue helping my team win more and more trophies”, he said. “My dream is to become a part of the club’s history.”
Lucas arrived at PSG in 2013 after a multimillion dollar move from Sao Paulo. At the time, the Parisian side beat off several other suitors, including Manchester City and AC Milan.
Since putting pen to paper he has gone on to make 114 appearances for the side – including 22 games in the Champions League.
His contract renewal is the clearest sign yet from PSG about their desire to strengthen the team while keeping their best players, thus providing continuity in their bid to win Europe’s top prize.
