Lucas Moura: Not leaving PSG in the January transfer window

Paris Saint-Germain's attacking midfielder Lucas Moura will not be leaving the Parc des Princes in January, according to his agent.

The 21-year-old playmaker has been linked with a move to defending Premier League champions Manchester United during the January transfer window.

However, despite admitting Moura is not getting as much game-time as he would like, the player's agent, Wagner Ribeiro, claims he will not be leaving France anytime soon.

The Brazilian winger has made 18 Ligue 1 appearances this term and has also featured in all six of PSG's Champions League group stage matches.

But with the big-spending Parisian club benefiting from a wealth of midfield talent, Moura has been unable to secure a regular starting berth in the French top flight.

Despite numerous media outlets suggesting Manchester United are ready to make a mid-season swoop for the player, Ribeiro believes now is not the time for Moura to leave.

"Lucas Moura isn't playing as much as we want, but he has been playing the most important games," he told Globo Esporte.

"It's not part of the plans to leave Paris now, he is slowing gaining his place in the team."

Moura's current contract with the club is not due to expire until the summer of 2017.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
