Mexico move 'not part of my plans': Pratto

IANS  |  Rio de Janeiro 

international striker Lucas Pratto has denied reports claiming he is close to leaving Brazil's Sao Paulo football club.

Pratto's agent, Matias Lahorca, had said earlier this month that his client was prepared to listen to offers, including a proposal from Mexican outfit Veracruz, reports Xinhua news agency.

"I think an offer was made to my agent, but leaving Sao Paulo is not part of my plans," Pratto told reporters.

Pratto has scored 10 goals in 20 appearances for Sao Paulo, whom he joined from their Brazilian rivals Atletico Mineiro in January.

"I want to stay at least until the end of the year," the 29-year-old said. "If the club want's to sell me, it's up to them. I signed a four-year contract and I want to see it out."
