Moura emerged as a serious target for Tottenham over the past month, with the winger having previously been linked with Manchester United.

The Brazil worldwide has signed a deal until 2023 at Spurs after being told he could find a new club, while sources close to PSG told ESPN FC that a late delay came from final negotiations over the €28m fee plus a potential additional €4m in bonuses. It's a big challenge for me, a new chapter of my life. Although he hasn't reached that level yet, he is still young and this move could be what he needs to push on for greater things.

Now, the Argentine has revealed that it "pained" him to drop one player from their Champions League squad.

Moura signed for PSG in January 2013 for £31.8m from Sao Paulo and has made over 150 appearances for the club, winning four Ligue 1 titles and three Coupe de France trophies.

"I think it's important for the team, different characteristics from different players".

Pochettino was asked whether he thought the player was an exciting signing and it's safe to say that he was in a joking mood.

Moura is a very talented and promising winger, and the Brazilian international's pace and skills will be importance for Spurs in the second half of the season.

Spurs completed a £28million deal for Lucas on the last day of the transfer window but Pochettino has called for patience with the Brazilian.

"It's just the beginning", said the 25-year-old, who scored the club's 2000th goal at the Parc des Princes against Montpellier.

"If you are in PSG and Neymar arrives, if he is better than you then he plays".

"We hope tomorrow he can start to work with the team". But for me it's very painful because that situation happened and it looks like we don't have a plan you know.

"To make new friends is always a pleasure and I will give my best for this club because I think we have a lot of quality and we can win big things".
