Lucas Moura: Only January signing

Paris St Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has insisted Lucas Moura will be the only new arrival at the capital club during the January transfer window despite further funds being available to him.

PSG remain locked in a three-way battle at the top of Ligue 1 alongside Lyon and Marseille, but Ancelotti does not see another spending spree as the way to pull clear.

The 20-year-old Moura has joined from Sao Paulo in a deal worth a reported 45million euros, agreed during the summer, but Ancelotti has no other plans to add to his squad.

"He will be the only player to arrive during the transfer window," Ancelotti said in comments reported by L'Equipe.

"He is a great player, a young player, and he will be the future of the club. We are happy because it was not easy to recruit a player as important as he is and he can help the team do better.

"But (we will not sign others) because we have a very good team and very good players. We made a big push in the summer transfer window and signed several players. There is no need to recruit any more."

Moura, who has joined after helping Sao Paulo to a controversial Copa Sudamericana victory over Tigre earlier this month, takes Ancelotti's squad to 30 players, and the Italian is now more interested in selling those surplus to requirements.

"Managing 30 players is not easy," he said. "If players want to leave the club, we can think about it but right now there is nothing official."

PSG are in Doha for a training camp during the Ligue 1 winter break.

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.
