Is Lucas Moura finally on his way to Manchester United?
Reports in the Mail on Sunday and The Telegraph claim that Lucas Moura is set to join Manchester United for around £30 million (almost €38 million). United have had several bids turned down by São Paulo, but if the claims are correct, the midfielder who turns 20 later this month, could finally be on his way to Old Trafford. São Paulo were originally holding out for something closer to the player’s buyout clause of £63 million (€80 million), but club president Juvenal Juvêncio came under pressure from directors and supporters to accept United’s bid.
Moura is currently on duty with Brazil’s Olympic squad but has started only one game so far in the competition and has yet to impress.
