Tottenham winger Lucas Moura speaks out on his plans for the future
Lucas’ Tottenham stint
Lucas Moura would join Tottenham in January of 2018 from French powerhouse, PSG.
Spurs are understood to have paid around £25.5m to land the Brazilian.
Since his move to Tottenham Lucas has featured on 161 occasions for the club, scoring 32 and assisting 19 along the way.
And whilst he has never quite reached the heights he seemed capable of in his early years, Lucas has still been a key figure for the Lilywhites.
His most memorable moment for the north Londoners would, of course, come during the 2018/19 campaign, when he netted a hat-trick in the 2nd leg of a Champions League semi-final to send Spurs through:

Lucas speaks out on his future
Now, in a recent interview with ESPN Brasil as cited by Sport Witness, Lucas has been speaking about his plans for the future.
The 29-year-old was born in and began his career at Sao Paulo, and has expressed his desire to return to the club before he retires.
He also stated that his plan is to stay in Europe for 10 years. So, after he signed for PSG in 2013, it does appear as though Lucas will return to Brazil in 2023.
“It’s in my plans to go back to Brazil, back to São Paulo. I never hid it from anyone, I never hid the affection and love I feel for São Paulo.
“When I left São Paulo, I said I wanted to stay for 10 years in Europe. Come rain, come shine, my goal, my plan is to stay 10 years.”
“But I do have a plan to go back, go back to São Paulo. I want to feel again what it’s like to play at Morumbi [São Paulo’s stadium], wear that shirt, the club of my heart. But I still have wood to burn. I’m feeling very good. Physically.”
