Sao Paulo starlet Lucas has said that he wants to make history with the Brazilian club before leaving to play in Europe.
The 18-year-old starred in the Tricolor's 4-3 mid-week win over Coritiba - scoring once and grabbing two assists - and was the subject of a rejected €27million offer from Inter Milan this week.
However, while the Brazilian was appreciative of the interest from one of Europe's biggest clubs, he is also in no rush to leave Sao Paulo.
"It's always nice to hear that big clubs are interested in you, that shows you are doing your job well, but I am too young at the moment," he said.
"I am just 18 and before I think about leaving I need to build my career in Sao Paulo. I want to win titles and make history here and then one day I will be ready to leave."
Asked whether his agent, Vagner Ribeiro, could force a move from Sao Paulo, Lucas didn't mince his words.
"There is no chance of that happening," he stated. "The final word is mine. He asks me and my father and I decide. If I say I do not want to leave then he has no way to make me."
Despite the flattering interest from Europe, Lucas added that he will not be affected and will continue to enjoy his football.
"It does not worry me. My mind if clear, I have wonderful parents who guide me and help me. I have no ambitions to leave now, I have my friends and my country here. Now is not the time," he concluded.
