Lucas is a top target for both Inter and United, which are now locked in talks with Sao Paulo over a fee for the attacking midfielder.
"My intention is for Sao Paulo and the fans to remember me as a warrior athlete, who gave his life and always gave his best for the team. I do not want my farewell to show a bad image of Lucas.
"I want people to remember me well.
"If I can stay and we win something, then all the better for Sao Paulo. Otherwise if I leave without winning, I hope to do so with a good reputation."
