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.
