São Paulo forward Lucas Moura looking forward to joining Paris St-Germain
São Paulo forward Lucas Moura is confident that his new club Paris St-Germain, who he will join in January 2013, can win the Ligue 1 title soon and said that the challenge of becoming top club was what made him choose the French giants.
Moura, 20, was a target for a number of Europe’s top club’s this summer but it was PSG who got their man for a rumoured fee of €45 million.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team currently sit third in Ligue 1, two points behind leaders Lyon, but Moura doesn’t think it will be long before success is bought to the Parc des Princes.
He told SporTV: "We know a title-winning team can't be made overnight. It takes some time for the players to gel. Some teams gel faster, others more slowly. But that's also up to each player, how they deal with each other, training, and determination. I'll help my teammates.
"I accepted PSG's offer for those reasons, for the challenge of becoming a top team and due to the Brazilians that play there.
"That motivated me, as did the fact I could remain in Brazil until the end of the year. I didn't want to leave Sao Paulo without qualifying the team to the Libertadores Cup, without winning a title.
"Those were the key reasons why I decided to join PSG."
