Tottenham striker Lucas Moura has revealed he had a private chat with Chelsea’s Jorginho about the possibility of joining Brazilian side Sao Paulo together.

Joining Spurs from Paris Saint-Germain in January 2018, Moura enjoyed a rather turbulent time in north London, the highlight of course being that Champions League semi-final against Ajax.

Despite over 200 appearances for the club (Transfermarkt), the 29-year-old hasn’t been shy about discussing his future with one year remaining on his current contract.

In a recent interview with Globo Esporte, Moura hinted at a potential return to Brazil to join former side Sao Paulo, who he originally left in 2012 for PSG as a teenager.

Moura has now reignited talks of a return to the club and, in the process, revealed he had exchanged messages with fellow countryman and Chelsea midfielder Jorginho over a potential move together.

He told ESPN Brasil: “There was a statement from Jorginho, from Chelsea, saying he was São Paulino, it seems.

“I private messaged him and said, ‘Let’s go soon.

“Then he said, ‘When you go, call me.

“I said, ‘I’ll remember that. “”

Moura has flirted with a return to Brazil and Sao Paulo in particular this summer, but it’s hard to see how that pans out with Conte loving him as a deep-lying player for his side.
