Former Tottenham Hotspur winger Lucas Moura has joined his boyhood team, Sao Paulo, until the end of the year, the Brazilian club said on Wednesday.
The 30-year-old Moura came out of Sao Paulo’s academy and played for the club professionally between 2010-12. He won the Copa Sudamericana with Sao Paulo in his last match before leaving for Paris Saint-Germain, and then promised he would return. So far, he has 33 goals in 128 matches for the Brazilian club.
“This is a special moment in my career, truly special,” Moura said, according to a club statement. “It is time, I am back home!”
Brazilian media reported that Moura is expected to join the MLS after his contract with Sao Paulo expires.
Moura played in France between 2013-18 before joining Tottenham. He was a free agent after leaving the London club at the end of the season.
