Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Lucas Moura has signed a new deal, keeping him in north London until 2024.
It was apparently the hat-tricks scored by the 27-year-old winger during the UEFA Champions League (particularly the one in the semi-final against Ajax) that convinced the club to prolong the Brazilian’s contract, initially signed until 2023.
Moura joined Spurs in January 2018 from Paris Saint-Germain, where he had spent the previous six years. He made his debut for the club in the Champions League in February 2018 and scored his first goal for the club only several days later, playing against Rochdale in the FA Cup. Although he had a difficult half a season after coming to England, the beginning of his first full season was promising, particularly after the 3-0 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford, for which he earned himself the Premier League Player of the Month award.
Moura has so far made over 60 appearances and scored altogether 16 times for the club. The forward is expected to play a vital role in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans for the season ahead, especially since the club’s last-minute attempt to acquire Paulo Dybala fell through.
