Rio de Janeiro, July 11 (IANS) Inter Milan target Lucas Moura has vowed not to let transfer speculation distract him from his Olympic preparations with Brazil.

The Italian Serie A outfit has reportedly had a 25 million euro offer rejected by Sao Paulo amid growing interest in the 19-year-old winger from Europe’s top clubs, reports Xinhua.

“I’m not aware of any concrete offers. I prefer to let my dad and agent look after those matters,” Moura said Tuesday.

“I don’t want the transfer talk to interfere with my performance. I want to concentrate on the Olympics,” he said.

Moura is currently with Brazil’s 18-man Olympic squad in Rio, where the team is undergoing a fitness and team bonding program before departing for London next Monday.

The teenager has also attracted interest from Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid, according to local reports.
