CBF refuse to release Lucas Moura for Manchester United medical
The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) have refused to release their Brazil international Lucas Moura for a medical at Manchester United. Late Saturday evening, The Mail on Sunday and The Telegraph were reporting that a deal had been done between United and São Paulo and that Moura would be having a medical at United. But a statement on the CBF site said they had not received a request from any English club and in any case, the player would not be released from Brazil’s training centre to attend a medical.
When Brazil’s football delegation arrived in the UK in late July, the CBF gave their permission for Oscar to attend a medical at Chelsea.
