Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Lucas Moura is very happy with his current situation at the Parc des Princes, Sky Sports understands.
Lucas, who joined PSG from Brasileirão giants São Paulo FC for a reported fee of €45 million in January, has yet to establish himself as a regular starter under new manager Laurent Blanc.
The Brazil international, 21, has started just six of 12 Ligue 1 matches for Les Parisiens this season, tallying two goals and three assists.
Recent reports have linked the 21-year-old ace with a shocking loan move back to Brazil amid rumoured interest from Fluminense and former club São Paulo.
However, Lucas has insisted he is ‘very happy’ with life in Paris, and who can blame him?
“I am very happy playing for a great team that have a huge and wonderful project to become one of the greatest teams in the world,” Lucas told Sportv.
“Playing for a big European club is a dream come true for me. I have a career plan at PSG and I intend to remain here for a long time and help the club more and more.
“I want to grow even more, learn even more – everything is new to me. I know what I am capable of, I know my potential.
“I am learning a lot here, playing alongside great players. That’s what matters to me.”
Lucas is 12/5 to score at anytime against 11th-placed OGC Nice on Saturday.
Napoli sign Reveillere
S.S.C. Napoli have completed the signing of former Olympique Lyonnais defender Anthony Réveillère on a short-term deal, according to UEFA.com.
Réveillère, 33, had been without a club after leaving the Stade de Gerland this summer.
“I am honoured to have the chance to play for Napoli,” said Réveillère.
The arrival of Réveillère at the Stadio San Paolo coincides with the loss of Camilo Zúñiga and Giandomenico Mesto to injury.
Zúñiga has not featured for the Partenopei since the club’s 2-0 UEFA Champions League defeat to Arsenal on 1 October, while Mesto has been ruled out until Spring 2014 after suffering a knee injury against Catania last weekend.
At the moment, Napoli are in second-place in the Serie A table, three points behind leaders Roma, and in the same position in Group F in the Champions League, three points clear of third-placed Borussia Dortmund.
Napoli will travel to Turin to face champions Juventus on Sunday evening.
Despite their impressive form, the visitors are massive underdogs heading into Sunday’s clash, and perhaps rightfully so.
