Manchester United & Chelsea target Lucas Moura hints at São Paulo exit
Lucas Moura has admitted he cannot guarantee that he will remain at São Paulo until his contract expires in 2014, as he finds the prospect of plying his trade in Europe appealing.
The 19-year-old is widely considered to be one of the most talented players in South America and has reportedly attracted interest from the like of Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Inter Milan.
São Paulo director of football Adalberto Baptistsa recently insisted that Lucas is not for sale, but the midfielder himself has refused to pledge his long term future to the Brazilian club.
''There is no way to tell that I will stay until 2014 because that is a long time from now and no one knows what will happen tomorrow," Lucas told Estadão.
''I am happy at Sao Paulo and I want to put the club back in the Copa Libertadores and help it to win titles.
''I am not obsessed about leaving. When it is time to leave, I will sit down with my family and see what the best thing for me is.
''But then you go on the internet and you read that Inter and Real Madrid are willing to pay a lot of money for me. Of course this makes you think.
''But I am not letting that get to me, I am calm and with my feet on the ground with regards to that.''
