Lucas Moura has insisted that he has not decided which club he will be signing for this summer, admitting that there are a lot of factors he must consider before choosing his next destination.
Although Lucas Moura did frustrate Tottenham fans at times during his five-and-a-half-year spell in North London, he will certainly remember fondly by the majority of the fan base, having provided one of the most exhilarating moments in the club’s recent history with his magic in Amsterdam.
The 30-year-old also wore his heart on his sleeve during his time at the club and showed once again how much Spurs means to him with his emotional farewell message to the fans on Thursday after it was confirmed that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season.
In the video (on the official Tottenham channel), the Brazilian broke down in tears and admitted that he will be ‘Spurs forever’.
The former Paris Saint-Germain star has now revealed that he does not know where he will be playing his football next season but ruled out a return to Brazil.
When asked where he will be heading in the summer, Moura told ESPN Brasil: “Man, I have to take a lot of things into consideration.
“I would even like to open more for you, but unfortunately, I can’t, because I don’t have anything set. I have no idea yet where I’m going to play, where my next home will be.
“My focus, my thinking, is simply enjoying these last few days here, enjoying these last two games, then going to Brazil on vacation, I’ve been missing my family, friends, my country. Then listen to the proposals and make the best decision.
“At 30 years old and free on the market, it’s an opportunity to make a good contract, being very honest with you. See the city, structure, school for the children, quality of life, and analyse these things.
“I have to say that Brazil is not in the plans for now. Because I’m still very young. I’m 30 years old, I have a lot of firewood to burn, I feel very good.”

I have no doubt that Moura will have quite a few offers from the top leagues around Europe as he still has a couple of years of football left in him at the top level.
The winger will also be looking for a three or four-year contract since this is likely to be the last big deal of his career.
