Lucas Moura has revealed he intends to make a decision over his future once the Olympic games are over.

Moura is part of the Brazil squad going for gold this summer, and wan an unused substitute yesterday as the Selecao secured an opening 3-2 win over Egypt.

The talented youngster has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, and Red devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed earlier this week that he had lodged a bid believed to be in the region of £26 million for the 19-year-old.

Despite the sizeable offer Sao Paulo remain adamant they will not sell this summer, while Moura’s agent had declared the deal dead – before stating this week that he had been instructed by his client to keep negotiating.


However Moura himself says he is keen to avoid all the rumours and focus on the task in hand, before making a decision over his future.

"I am focusing on my team, Sao Paulo and in Brazil's national team at the moment. I'll decide my future after the Olympics," Moura told Spanish news agency EFE.

"It's already a victory to be here. Now I have to be ready for any situation if Mano Menezes believes I have to play."
