In-demand Brazilian midfielder Lucas Moura has insisted that decisions over his future will have to wait until after the Olympic Games.
Moura is in the United Kingdom with Mano Menezes’ Olympic football team and Brazil are aiming to end their competition hoodoo by claiming gold.
That though has not stopped the spotlight from being shone on Moura’s future, with Manchester United having bid for his services, while Inter are long-time suitors.
The race for the Sao Paulo man’s signature is set to be fierce, but it is not one that Moura can allow to distract him from the job at hand at the Olympic Games.
And that is why a decision will have to wait.
"Right now I am focused on my team, Sao Paulo, and the Brazilian team. I’ll decide my future when the Olympics end", stressed Moura.
"I’m a Sao Paulo player. I have a contract with them.
"What I care about now is Brazil and my team, nothing is officially agreed with any team."
Moura has the chance to increase the intensity of the scramble to sign him still further by turning in a number of impressive performances in the Olympic Games.
While Sao Paulo will also been keen to realise the highest possible price for the starlet.
