Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola at the weekend conducted a livestream which was flooded by São Paulo fans asking if there’s any chance their club could sign Lucas Moura from Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The winger has been playing little under Antonio Conte, rarely getting any starts lately, and that’s why the Tricolor fans were hopeful he could return to Brazil.

Nicola then went after more information on this story, and in a video today, he brings an update on the situation.

The journalist claims to have spoken to someone from Moura’s staff and a São Paulo official. Both claimed “there is not the slightest possibility” that this move could happen soon.

The first reason is the player’s salary, claimed to be of R$2.2k (£347k) a month. Then there’s the fact that his contract with Tottenham runs until 2024, and Spurs would demand a fee to let him go now.

With Moura already claiming he’d like to return to São Paulo, it’s said his idea is to do that in 2024, when his contract with Tottenham runs out. That’s why, according to Nicola, the Brazilian club’s biggest chance of landing the player is if he stays in London until then instead of signing a contract somewhere else.
