PSG new boy, Lucas Moura is relishing the prospect of playing in the same team as David Beckham, calling the opportunity an "honour."

Moura, who in this past summer turned down a big money move to Manchester United, the club at which Beckham made his name and still enjoys a legendary status, had nothing but praise for the signing.

"He is a footballing icon, a star, both on and off the pitch," he said.

The former Sao Paulo is in no doubt Beckham,37, still has a lot to offer on the pitch saying, "Our team will win a lot and will gain visibility. With his quality, he has a lot to improve us. For me it will be an honour to play alongside him."

Moura is currently preparing for Brazil's friendly match against Beckham's home nation, England at Wembley on Wednesday night.
