Lucas Moura will soon reach the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, according to his agent.

The Paris Saint-Germain winger has enjoyed a rich vein of form for the Ligue 1 champions in recent months, despite Laurent Blanc’s side struggling for consistency and having slipped behind both Lyon and Marseille in the table.

The 22-year-old’s agent, Wagner Ribeiro, has little doubt his client is enjoying his best spell with the club since his arrival in January 2013 and feels he will soon be as good as the world’s very best players.

“At the moment, Lucas is going through his best phase with PSG,” he told L’Equipe. “He plays every game, he scores, he wins penalties… he’ll soon be battling with Neymar, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, Messi and Cristiano. He plays football for that.”

Lucas himself admits he is relishing the backing from the Parc des Princes faithful and is eager to forge a long and successful career in the French capital.

“It’s really exciting to hear the fans chanting my name. It inspires me, it motivates me. I’m very happy at PSG and I want to stay in Paris for a long time,” he said.
