Lucas Moura ready to fight for PSG, Brazil place

Lucas Moura has shared his desire to stay at Paris Saint-Germain and is hopeful that he can also force his way into the Brazil World Cup squad.

The 21-year-old forward has played 57 times and scored three goals for Les Rouge-et-Bleu since joining the club from Sao Paulo in August 2012 for a reported 40 million euros.

However, despite struggling to secure a regular place in Laurent Blanc's side, Moura stressed that he is extremely happy in Paris and focused only on being a success at the club and working toward a place in the Brazil national setup.

"Life in Paris is superb – this is a wonderful city," the youngster told French soccer publication Telefoot. "Of course I miss Brazil, but I've adapted well. I have improved these last few months and I'm really satisfied about my progress. I'm more at ease now, more able to help my team. I'm very happy. I don’t want to go back to Brazil. I want to make history here in Paris."

The Brazilian has already secured Ligue 1 and Trophee des Champions winners medals since arriving in France but is determined to add to his current haul and also earn more than the 31 Selecao caps he has so far.

"I'm only 21 years old and I want to win trophies," he said. "I have still a lot to experience here and I want to stay. I will fight until the end. I'll do everything I can to reach the World Cup and be on the list."

PSG currently tops Ligue 1 with 76 points from 31 games, leading second-place Monaco by 13 points.
