Paris, France – Lucas Moura made his move to PSG official on Tuesday, putting pen to paper on a four-and-a-half year deal with the French club.
PSG had reached an agreement Brazilian club Sao Paulo for the sale of the highly-touted attacker over the summer, but Lucas was set to finish the remainder of the Brazilian season before making the switch to Europe.
The sale, worth approximately $52.8 million, was completed on Tuesday and the 20-year-old is now set to join up with his new teammates.
"Everyone expects a lot from me but I have a lot of confidence," he said at his news conference. "I'm glad to know (manager) Carlo Ancelotti is counting on me. I don't feel the pressure."
PSG is tied with Lyon and Marseille on 38 points apiece but sits atop the table with the edge in goal differential.
