Lucas is halfway through his second season in Ligue 1, but despite struggling to nail down a place in the PSG starting XI, he has told French newspaper L’Equipe (via Le 10 Sport) that he has no intention of throwing in the towel,

My goal is always to help my team.” the 21-year-old said,

When I come into play, I always give the best of myself. This match confirmed that our team is very competitive, with experienced players who make the difference. My personal situation? My head is here, I never thought of a departure when the transfer window.” 

Lucas came on at half time for PSG in their 5-0 win over Nantes yesterday, and has been strongly linked with a loan move this month, with Liverpool reportedly joining United in showing interest.

However it now seems as though both Premier League giants will have to focus on other targets this January, with the Brazilian wanting to stay and show his worth to the Ligue 1 leaders.

What do you think? Would Lucas have been a shrewd signing? Let me know in the comments below…

  1. David Moyes must be dreaming thinking that EPL title is not beyond MU. He should be concerned if we are still able to be in the champions league. By the look of it if he is still defiant we may not be even in the Europa league. Worse still all the big names will leave the club. I am surprise that he feels MU with him, an underachiever, at the helm can attract world class players to join the club. He suddenly thought that he is marinho at Chelsea. He forgot that the Portuguese won the champions league and domestic trophies while he had won nothing.

  2. I believe Moyes is a good coach and all Manchester unites need right now are new faces and its not been easy. Whatever the case is whether we make it to the champs league next season or not or the Europa league or not we still need new and fresh legs to pull through. Fortunately for all of us we can speak of how Liverpool has built their team when there was no hope and now they are title favorites. So to all united fans, believe in Moyes.
