Lucas Moura to delay decision on future until after Olympics

Brazilian youngster Lucas Moura will decide his future at Sao Paulo after his involvement in the Olympics, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Moura has long been linked with a move to Manchester United this summer and reports have suggested both clubs have been locked in talks, but there has been a difference of opinion over the valuation of the 19-year-old.

Sir Alex Ferguson is rumoured to be hesitant to spend over £20million on a player who has yet to showcase his talent in a top European league, however his club Sao Paulo are reported to be only interested in selling the player if the Red Devils part with around £30million.

Speaking to ESPN, the attacking midfielder said: "At the moment I'm a São Paulo player and I'm focused on the Olympics, I don't want to worry about this. If I am meant to leave now, it will happen. Otherwise, I'll remain calm because I'm still very young.”

The 19-year-old has scored 14 goals for the senior side in just 59 first-team appearances since he broke into the senior side in 2010 and has attracted the interest of European clubs such as Inter Milan and Real Madrid, though Manchester United have appeared to be in pole position.

Moura continued to say: "After the Olympics are over, I'll decide. If I stay at Sao Paulo, I'll be happy because it's the club where I started my career."
