The $72 million man
On Friday, the much hyped Lucas Moura made his debut for the club in their game against AC Ajaccio. Over the summer the oil rich club bought the 20 year old from São Paulo. Both clubs agreed that he would not join PSG until January. During the summer PSG outbid Manchester United for Moura services.
To start the game Moura started on the right side of the midfield pushing forward at any chance he got.
During the game he showed some of the skills that made him one of the worlds most valuable footballers. The one thing that surprised me was that Moura got involved in a couple of challenges, you don't usually see that with a player coming over from Brazil. His on the ball strength was impressive for a player who is only 20 years old.
The one negative I see was that he kept drifting inside and not staying on the wing.
Based on a first appearance it looks like Moura is going to be a stat in the French capital.
