The 19-year-old is leaving that to his agent while he concentrates on the business of trying to win a gold medal with his country.

"I am focusing on my team, Sao Paulo and in Brazil's national team at the moment. I'll decide my future after the Olympics," Moura told Spanish news agency EFE.

"It's already a victory to be here. Now I have to be ready for any situation if Mano Menezes believes I have to play."
