Brazilian publication UOL have claimed that Lucas Moura could join Sao Paulo next summer after his contract with Tottenham runs out.

Aston Villa (The Telegraph) and Newcastle United (Football Insider) were credited with an interest in Moura on transfer deadline day but the winger ended up staying put at Tottenham.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold previously revealed that although the former PSG man’s contract at Spurs runs out in 2023, the North London club have the option to extend it by another 12 months.

If UOL’s latest update is to be believed, as things stand, Moura’s preference would be to leave on a free transfer next summer.

The report claims that despite attracting interest from European clubs, the player wants to return to Sao Paulo and has a good relationship with the club’s current president Julio Casares.

The report adds that the Brazilian club believe they can snap up the Tottenham man and the financial boost they have received from Anthony’s move from Ajax to Manchester United (due to a sell-on clause) only adds to their optimism.

UOL also add that both Moura and his family wish to return to their home country next summer. 

Spurs Web Opinion

I am not sure that the Spurs hierarchy would be too enthusiastic about the idea of letting Lucas leave on a free transfer. However, the Brazilian has been a loyal servant to the club, which may perhaps convince them to cede to his demands and forgo a transfer fee.
