Lucas Moura: Leaving Paris Saint-Germain "a possibility"

Manchester United-linked winger Lucas Moura admits that leaving Paris Saint-Germain this summer "could be a possibility" after losing his place in the side last season.

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Lucas Moura has ruled out a return to South America, but admits that he could be tempted to leave the club should a concrete offer be made.

The 24-year-old, who joined PSG from native Sao Paulo in 2013, lost his place in the starting lineup in the second half of last season and has been tipped to move on.

Manchester United were reported to have opened talks with the Brazil international last month, four years after rejecting the advances of then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson, but those rumours appear to be wide of the mark as no approach has yet been made.

"In every transfer window there is always a lot of speculation," he told Diario De Sao Paulo. "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."

Moura finished last season with 19 goals and six assists for PSG across 53 appearances in all competitions.
