Tottenham forward Lucas Moura is ready to see out his contract and leave on a free in the summer, with a possible return to Brazil for the forward.
The Brazilian has started just two games this term and missed two months of the campaign with a calf injury.
He has found himself way down the pecking order at Spurs this season, and although a January exit remains unlikely unless the club find a replacement, Moura is expected to leave the club at the end of the season.

The 30-year-old is wanted by his former club Sao Paulo in Brazil but expects offers from England also. Aston Villa, Manchester United and Newcastle showed an interest in Moura last summer.
It was at Sao Paulo where Moura first made a name for himself, having joined the club when he was 13-years-old.
After moving up from the academy, he went on to play 86 games for the club, scoring 22 goals and racking up 19 assists in two seasons before moving to Paris Saint-Germain in 2013.

He arrived in North London five years later and went on to become a reliable asset for Spurs. With the highlight of his stint being his memorable hat-trick in the Champions League semi-final against Ajax that sent Tottenham to the competition’s final in 2019.
In the 213 games his played for Spurs he’s scored 38 times and has 27 assists, but could now be ready to return to his homeland once his contract has expired at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Moura may not be the only upcoming exit out of the club, with Tottenham anticipating talks with Napoli next week over the permanent sale of midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
