Lucas Moura has revealed the upcoming season could be his final at Tottenham and admitted that he is desperate to help the club win silverware.

Moura has been at Tottenham for four and half years, and has played under four different managers in Mauricio Pochettino, Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte.

The winger has publicly admitted his desire to return to Sao Paulo in the future (Andre Hernan 22/06/22 via  SportsWitness) but has now reiterated that he is extremely happy at Spurs and the club have the option to extend his contract by another year next summer.

The former Paris Saint-Germain man revealed he is desperate to help the Lilywhites end their trophy drought and admitted he still has not given up hope of making it into the Brazilian squad for the World Cup in November.

Moura told Football.London: “I will turn 30 in August. I’m getting old already, but I feel very good mentally and physically.

“I’m very, very happy at Tottenham. I love the club. I love the fans. I love everyone who works in the club, but of course, I have a plan to go back to Brazil one day. I have at least one year in my contract, maybe two.

“I don’t know if the club will want me to sign another contract but I’m happy here. I just want to have the best season this season.

“I just want to win a trophy because this has been my objective here since the first day I arrived in the club, and I believe this season I can achieve this, and then we’ll see next season what is the desire of the club.

“This season could be my last season here. It depends on the club. They have the option to extend for one more year. My first target of the season is to lift a trophy.

“I lifted a trophy with Sao Paulo, with Paris and with the national team, and I want a trophy here with Tottenham. I think we deserve it but it’s only words. You need to work for this.

“Then I have other targets, which are to go back to the national team. Why not play in the World Cup at the end of the year, it’s very difficult but anything is possible. I have this hope and I will work for this. These are the two most important targets for now.”

Spurs Web Opinion

While Moura can be a frustrating player at times, his value to the squad cannot be underestimated. Not only is the Brazilian priceless for the squad morale, but he is not one to moan when he is left out of the team, and always gives 100 per cent when he comes on. I am not surprised that Conte sees value in keeping the 29-year-old around as a squad player.
