In fact, this particular circumstance of spying by the coach has not changed at all the intentions there are in the white club with the player. The best option that Real Madrid provides for now is to try to secure a purchase option so the player can continue to play at least a year in Sao Paulo.
Moreover, there were few new conclusions that Mourinho could get during the friendly. Lucas Moura played out of his natural position, placed to the left and with little presence in the offensive game of his team. Nothing to do with the active participation that he often provides in Sao Paulo when he plays as playmaker.
Lucas Moura's performance did not convince Mourinho and the coach talked about it with members of the white club. The Portuguese thinks Moura is not ready to make the leap from Brazil to a team from the requirement of Real Madrid this summer. Mourinho is also aware that Sao Paulo will ask for more than 25 million euros (rejected an offer of that amount from Inter Milan) and there are several major European teams interested in him. So the operation would be too expensive, especially if the coach is unsure of his performance.
The white coach's decision is not based on this match with Brazil. Real Madrid managed good reports of the player and had provided to Mourinho several videos and data of the Brazilian player. So after his journey through Turkey. Mourinho moved to Itmech Arena in Hamburg with his agent, Jorge Mendes, and his son to see Lucas Moura live.
After the friendly match, Moura himself admitted that he knew the interest of Mourinho: "I did not know he was here, but I knew he would see the game somehow". Sao Paulo's president, Juvenal Juvencio, has also talked about this: "Real Madrid is one of those who are interested in him". But the player's agent, Wagner Ribeiro, has said he will stay in Brazil until 2014. Moura agreed with his agent: "It is too early to go to Europe". Mourinho thinks the same that the player.
