Sao Paulo president Julio Casares has refused to rule out the possibility of Tottenham winger Lucas Moura returning to the club next summer.

Moura’s current contract with Spurs runs out at the end of the 2022-23 season but Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that the North London club have the option to extend his deal by 12 months.

UOL claimed earlier this month that the winger wishes to return to Sao Paulo next summer. The publication explained that despite attracting interest from European clubs, the Spurs star prefers to return to his boyhood club as his family want to move back to Brazil.

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

Casares has now chosen to keep his cards close to his chest when quizzed about a potential homecoming for Moura.

When asked if the winger could return to the club, the Sao Paulo simply said on the YouTube channel of Brazilian journalist Andre Hernan: “Who knows. Who knows.”

It seems like Moura himself is keen on returning to Sao Paulo but I doubt if the Brazilian club would be able to compete with European clubs with respect to the transfer fee. 

Perhaps, Spurs will honour the winger’s wishes and choose not to take up the option to extend his contract, thus allowing him to complete a free transfer to his boyhood club.
