Journalist Jorge Nicola has revealed on the Canal do Nicola YouTube channel (05/09/22 – as relayed by Sport Witness) that Lucas Moura’s agent and Tottenham will meet soon to discuss the winger’s future.

Moura’s only two appearances so far this season came in Tottenham’s first two matches against Southampton and Chelsea, with the Brazilian coming on as a second-half substitute in both games.

Aston Villa (The Telegraph) and Newcastle United (Football Insider) were credited with an interest in the 30-year-old on transfer deadline day but the winger ended up staying put at the North London club.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold had previously revealed that although Moura’s contract at Spurs runs out in 2023, the Lilywhites have the option to extend it by another 12 months.

However, Brazilian publication UOL claimed last week that the former PSG man could join Sao Paulo on a free next summer once his contract runs out.

Nicola has now explained on his YouTube channel that Moura’s agent Junior Pedroso has scheduled a meeting with the Spurs hierarchy to speak about the player.

The journalist claims the parties will discuss whether the player will remain in Europe or if he could return to Brazil next summer.

Nicola adds that departing Spurs before next summer is ‘nearly impossible’ for Moura but a return to his home country is on the cards in 12 months.

Spurs Web Opinion

If Moura wishes to return to Brazil, the only way that could happen is if Spurs do not take up the option to extend his contract. I do not see Sao Paulo or any other Brazilian club being able to pay a transfer fee for the winger. Tottenham might decide to honour the 30-year-old’s wishes and allow him to leave as a free agent next summer.
