Lucas Hitch!

Lucas Hitch!

Yesterday; or it may have been the day before, we reported on how a deal for Lucas Moura looked to be in the offering.

The fact that the player has joint ownership and that Sao Paulo might be looking to cash in before losing a 10% share of the player seemed a good enough reason to pre-empt a sale.

Today though, the story has taken on another slant with rumours coming out of Brazil that Sao Paulo are willing to take a financial risk and keep the player, possibly taking a gamble that this worth will increase thereby negating that proposed 10% loss.

Talking about the situation the club President, Juvenal Juvencio, has remarked,

"It is a risk not selling Lucas but we are going to take it."

Or perhaps, as the tabloid press are speculating, it might just be a ply to push the transfer fee up!

We`ll keep you abreast of any further developments.

Lucas Moura just seems too much of s risky signing for my liking. The lad could be a world beater or a monumental flop, there's no in between considering the fee involved and the potential he's showing.

Joking aside Moura is a very risky gamble sure he has potential by the bucket load. But let's look at our past with south Americans it's not that great. More flops than successes. We seem to have bucked the trend slightly in the more recent years but its a lot of money for a completely unproven young player.
