PSG sign teenage star Moura

8 August 2012 20:12

Paris Saint-Germain have signed Lucas Moura from Sao Paulo for a reported fee of 35 million euros.

The Brazilian teenager will move to the Parc des Princes in January.

The 19-year-old has long been linked with a move to Europe, with Manchester United and Inter Milan the long-term front-runners for his signature.

However, it was reported earlier this week that PSG had leaped to the front of the queue for the attacking midfielder by tabling a significant offer, and the Ligue 1 outfit confirmed on Wednesday that a transfer had been agreed.

A statement on the club’s official website read: “Paris Saint-Germain and Sao Paulo FC have reached today an agreement for the definitive transfer of Lucas Rodriguez Moura Da Silva.

"The player and Paris Saint-Germain have also signed an agreement from January 2013 to July 2017. The player will join Paris Saint-Germain and his new team-mates in January 2013 for the second half of the season 2012/2013.

"By signing a young talent of the quality of Lucas Rodriguez Moura Da Silva, Paris Saint-Germain is already preparing the future."

Lucas becomes Carlo Ancelotti's fourth major signing this summer, following the arrivals of countryman Thiago Silva, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Argentina international Ezequiel Lavezzi.

He is believed to have signed a contract worth 250,000 euros a month, putting him on a par with some of the club's top earners.

Lucas is currently on international duty at the Olympic Games, as Brazil prepare for their gold medal match with Mexico on Saturday.
