Sao Paulo's Brazilian international Lucas will not be leaving the club this month, according to his agent.

The agent of Brazilian youngster Lucas has insisted that his client will remain with Sao Paulo until at least the summer.

The 19-year-old has been linked with moves to a number of clubs this month, including Manchester United, Liverpool and Inter Milan.

However, agent Junior Pedroso has denied speculation that a deal is in the offing.

"There is nothing definite with Inter to sign Lucas for next season," Pedroso told

"The information is incorrect. Luke cannot talk or negotiate with Inter, without authorization from Sao Paulo.

"Lucas does not have the desire to leave Sao Paulo, so we've not started any talks with a club abroad. I can assure you the boy will remain with Sao Paulo until the summer."

Lucas has made ten appearances for the Brazil national team.
