Lucas Moura: I have a lot of work to do before PSG arrival
Lucas, 20, will join the Ligue 1 side in January after completing the current campaign with São Paulo, but believes that a winter move gives him time to prepare for what lies ahead.
The young forward had been at the centre of a raging transfer battle between the cash-rich Parisiens and Manchester United, but eventually chose the French side, even after agreeing terms with the Red Devils.
''The value and impact of my transfer only increases my responsibility. However, I'm happy that the transfer has now been completed," Lucas acknowledged.
''It shows my work was good and now, I have a lot of work to do to arrive in Paris in good condition and meet expectations.
''It's clear that I am eager to join a new club, but on the other hand, I still want to enjoy being in Brazil, to help my club qualify for the Libertadores and, if possible, win titles. I will also enjoy having my family, my friends and my parents around.
"I want to organise things calmly; I will have plenty of time to organise my departure to Paris. I will also begin French lessons so that I don't arrive there unable to understand anything!"
One person who had been speaking enthusiastically of Lucas' potential arrival this week was Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic, ahead of his country's friendly encounter with Brazil.
The young Brazilian was equally enthusiastic about his senior, adding: "Zlatan Ibrahimovic is an excellent player - one of the best in his position.
''I hope that our partnership will work. I saw him get off the bus in Sweden, but that was all. I have not spoken to him.''
The recent transfer saga was played out on a very public stage, with Lucas in the United Kingdom to participate in the Olympic Games. A silver medal followed, but it was greated as a failure by the Brazilian side who had covetted gold from the beginning.
Lucas added: ''It was a sad moment, I cried on the pitch. It was very difficult, even moreso because I hadn't played.
''I wanted to help my team-mates but, in football, you have to get these things out your mind without regretting anything.''
