São Paulo confirm PSG interest in Manchester United target Lucas Moura

The silence surrounding Paris Saint-Germain and Lucas Moura was finally lifted when Sao Paulo vice-president Joao Paulo de Jesus Lopes said the club had been approached by the French side. Former Brazil and São Paulo player, Leonardo, is director of football at PSG and in an interview with newspaper Le 10 Sport, Lopes confirmed: “We have been probed by PSG about Lucas … Leonardo has a very good relationship with Sao Paulo. But for now nothing is definite … The possibility exists but it is down to the player’s interests”.
Globoesporte first broke the news of a possible deal with PSG on Sunday evening but until now the clubs had refused to discuss the possible transfer. The scenario has changed. Lopes went on to say: The policy of Sao Paulo is to follow the desires of the player. If the player wishes to leave, Sao Paulo will not create any obstacle. But we must receive a proposal that is appropriate”.
The bid from the French side is believed to be in the region of £35 million and though the deal is not expected to be announced officially until after the Olympics (though there is a possibility it could go through once Brazil leave Manchester).
“It’s a financial issue. Paris St Germain is a big club in European football and if the player’s interests and also the club’s are met, I do not see why it would not happen” added Lopes.
