United Chiefs In Brazil To Thrash Out Deal For £30m Chelsea Target

Manchester United are in talks to sign Chelsea target Lucas Moura this summer, according to the Mirror.

The report claims that Sir Alex Ferguson has made the Sao Paulo starlet his number one target as he looks to add a marquee signing this summer, and has urged the Glazers to splash out £30m on the youngster.

United have now sent club officials, including chief scout Jim Lawlor, to Brazil to try and seal a deal for the exciting 19-year-old attacker, but will still face competition from Chelsea, who have already had a bid rejected for the player, as well as Real Madrid who are also in talks with the players representatives.

United have been tracking Lucas for some time now and have even invited the players father to Old Trafford for preliminary talks. The youngster is part-owned by his family and Fergie is looking to reduce Sao Paulo’s £35m asking price by agreeing a deal with his parents first.

The key for Ferguson will be persuading the Glazers to part with the money required to land the Brazilian, and the Scot hopes the fact Moura will have a strong re-sale value will work in his favour.

Moura has already played 80 times for Sao Paulo having broken into the side at just 17.

      Don’t u ever say anything was ruined by SAF.. He’s the reason u love ur club.. So if u think it’s somehow the greatest manager in world footballs fault somehow, even tho our mediocre squad compared to city’s lost only on goal difference.. Stop watching football of buy a city kit.

    Be sure to hear SAF say ” there is no value in the market” meaning they can compete instead of giving that silly excuse

      And you.. What do u expect ferguson to say? Whilst in ur small head he may be king, SAF is an employee of the glazers and going out and making public statement like we have no money and speaking I’ll of the glazers could cost him his job.. So he must silently suffer whilst putting up a fighting face for u and the public just for u to have faith in him.. Wake up.. Ferguson is the only reason a broke club can compete with the best.. Show some respect

    Feggie is a true politician. Each time a rival team makes a move for any exciting player he will definitely steps in to buy the same player. He does that to whitle down opposition’s strength. That is how politicians in my country, Nigeria behave. They do anything within their power to stop their opponent. Well, that is the politics aspect of football management in action.

      No way on this planet do you know what you are rumbling on about. Dear o dear. Comabtive defensive midfielder? Firstly learn more about Manchester United not what the Taboids tell you. Secondly, Fergie has never had a Defensive Midfielder. He has always had a deep lying quarter-back esque midfielder, Carrick, Scholes, & a box to box Midfielder in Fletcher, Cleverly and now Kagawa. Man Utd need a left-back, for cover of Evra. Central Midfielder is needed as Fletcher won’t be back for some time. However I’m happy with Kagawa!
