Lucas Moura to leave Tottenham at end of the season
Lucas Moura is to exit Tottenham at end of the season.
Lucas Moura will leave Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season after the club in north London refused to renew his contract.
Moura’s contract with Tottenham expires at the end of June, and they had until December 31 to inform him that they wished to renew it. That period has already gone. After five and a half seasons, the team has made the decision to move on.
According to The Athletic, Lucas Moura does not want to leave Spurs in January as he will be a free agent come the summer, something which will enable him to move for a higher salary and potentially a better project.

The 30-year-old joined Tottenham in January 2018 and is happy to depart the club after working there for more than five years.
Moura is not currently in talks with any other teams and will meet with his representatives in London in the upcoming weeks to decide what to do next. Although the attacker is open to all possibilities for his future, a move back to Brazil is not currently considered to be a top priority.
The former Sao Paulo winger has made 213 appearances for Spurs so far, scoring 38 goals. Among the most memorable of those will be the hat-trick Moura scored in Tottenham’s incredible 3-2 comeback victory in the second leg of their 2019 Champions League semi-final against Ajax at the Johan Cruyff Arena.
