Leandro Damiao has revealed a mystery club submitted a ‘very good’ offer to sign him this summer and confirmed he’d be keen on leaving Brazil one day, according to Sky Sports.

Damiao has become one of the most sought-after strikers in world football after another impressive season with Internacional where he scored 38 goals in just 51 games, and he further enhanced his reputation after finishing top scorer at the London 2012 Olympics with 6 goals.

Tottenham have seen a number of bids rejected for the 23-year-old over the past two years, while Manchester United, Real Madrid and Inter Milan have also been strongly linked throughout the summer.

Internacional president Giovanni Luigi has always insisted the player wouldn’t be leaving unless a club met his buy-out clause, which is believed to be over £40million.

Damiao has now revealed that a ‘very good’ offer came in for his services his summer but stopped short of naming the interest club, before confirming he’ll leave Brazil at one point in the future.

“The value of the offer was very good for me and for Internacional,”

“But it didn’t happen. I think Giovanni Luigi is a great president and he knows what he’s doing.

“I’m very happy to be playing in Brazil. I’ll certainly leave at some point for sure, but not today.”

Damiao is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail

    40 million is way to much for this guy , he may well turn out to be a good player , but not all Brazilian players have cut it on this side of the water , 20 million top’s , and that’s even taking a chance !

    It definitely seems that south american players have struggled more at Manchester United than others. Such a long list of failed players.

    thing is united doesnt need many strikers now so i dont think united would be involved esp if the price is over 10 mils pound

    The clause on the Brzilian striker is far far too much and beside united problem is a central midfielder
