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.
