David Moyes travelled to watch Paris St Germain’s Lucas Moura against Bordeux earlier this week and is planning a £30 million bid for the player.
Moyes is looking to strengthen his under-performing Manchester United team and thinks that the Brazilian would be a good addition.
It isn’t the first time the 21-year-old has been wanted by United and during Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign the midfield play-maker had the opportunity to move to Manchester, but instead opted for a move to PSG from Sao Paulo for £37 million.
However, this deal is far from done as it isn’t clear if PSG want to sell Moura or if United’s valuation of the player is correct.
Moura has struggled to make an impact in France and like many is looking towards this summer’s World Cup in his native Brazil.
As reported in the Daily Star, Moyes could offer first team football at Old Trafford whilst United bosses are willing to match his wages of £120,000-a-week.
Whilst watching Moura, it is thought Moyes was also looking at Javier Pastore, but it is thought Moyes prefers the Brazilian.
Whilst Moyes could add Moura, it looks as though he could lose Brazilian twins Rafael and Fabio da Silva at the end of the season with their agent, Cassiano Pereira, stating he thinks they will both leave.
He said: “At the moment I can say that they will remain in Manchester until the end of the season, but in the summer it is very likely that they can go.”
United also confirmed that three clubs, including Fiorentina, are chasing Anderson, whilst there have been no enquires for Nani.
