Rai: Lucas is a 'great acquisition' for PSG
Following the completion of Lucas Moura's transfer from São Paulo to Paris Saint-Germain, Sambafoot spoke to legendary Brazil midfielder Raí about the transfer. Raí, himself, is heralded as an idol by both clubs and is perfectly placed to give his opinion on Lucas.
The arrival of Lucas at Paris Saint Germain, is it a good deal for PSG?
The arrival of Lucas is a great acquisition for Paris Saint Germain. He is an excellent player who is very fast, very technical and has a good attitude. This is an important recruit for the future of PSG because he is still very young. It's really a good investment.
Is he not leaving Brazil too early? He is not yet 20 years olf...
In Brazil, unfortunately, we are used to this, even if, in the case of Neymar, we can now retain our best players. But the PSG proposal was significant, as were offers from other European clubs interested in Lucas. We must note that São Paulo needs money and the decision to sell was inevitable.
He will arrive at Paris in winter, do you think he will adapt quickly?
I think he will adapt quickly because PSG have a great team this year and great players, their team will not depend on Lucas. This is the ideal scenario for him to have a quieter period of adjustment.
