Moura happy to stay at PSG after Blanc exit

Football journalist Ricardo Perrone of media outlet UOL says that Moura was unhappy at PSG under former coach Laurent Blanc and was set on leaving the Parc des Princes.

However, he explains that the 23-year-old's situation has changed completely following the French champions' appointment of Unai Emery in place of Blanc.

Moura joined PSG in January 2013.

"Lucas now feels more valued," the Brazilian's camp is quoted as telling UOL.

Atleti not giving up yet

But Perrone adds that Atlético have not ruled out a renewed offensive for the player, despite being initially turned down.
