Man Utd target intent on remaining with PSG for a lengthy spell

Manchester United target Lucas Moura is keen on staying put at Paris Saint-Germain for the long haul.

Moura was heavily linked with United over the summer but the attacking midfielder quashed the Red Devils' hopes of signing him by putting pen to paper on a new deal with PSG which runs until 2019.

Now, the 23-year old has gone on to reveal why he rejected the advances of United over the summer with the Brazilian international telling France Football: "I love being in Paris. I want to make history.

"I feel that I can win the Champions League with PSG. But it is not only the club, but also life in Paris which is fantastic. That's why I want to stay here long.

"At first, my family and I missed our friends. The Brazilians are very close to their families, even in difficult times. We are always happy to be together.

"Now everything is better because I live with my mother, my stepfather, my girlfriend. I can not complain about anything. I live in the most beautiful city in the world.

"Moreover, I am doing something that I love: playing football."
