If there’s one media in France keeping on top of the Lucas Moura situation, it’s Le10 Sport.
At least a couple of times a week, the French website release a new ‘exclusive’ about the Brazilian forward, with Chelsea normally mentioned.
A few weeks ago, their main line was that Willian was set to leave Stamford Bridge in January, with a transfer to China the most probably outcome, and Moura, currently heavily underused in the French capital, would be his replacement.
Well, that has apparently now changed, as the very same outlet claim the Chelsea forward is now set to stay at Chelsea, meaning the interest in the Paris Saint-Germain winger has gone a bit cold.
Now clubs in China are said to be looking at the former Sao Paulo starlet, although talk of a transfer there, still according to Le10 Sport, is very premature.
Was Lucas ever really a Chelsea target? Our chance of finding out appears to be slowly disappearing.
Funny how this happens just a week after Le Parisien stated the Premier League’s top six was ‘closed’ to the 25-year-old, isn’t it?
