Sir Alex during an interview with MUTV, has confirmed United's interest in the hugely talented Brazilian midfielder, Lucas Moura. Amid reports that United has struck a deal with Sao Paulo, Sir Alex was quick to dumb down those expectations, "It's not correct. We haven't reached an agreement for the player. We have shown an interest, but until such time we get a deal agreed, we can't say he's our player."
It has to come as a surprise for many fans to see Sir Alex revealing his transfer targets so early on, but as a reporter it's a great news to see the transparent communications between the press and Sir Alex. Back on the matter, Lucas would cost supposedly £26 million in transfer fee alone, not including agent fees and image rights etc. However, the Boss has also revealed that United are 'not lying around' and are actively on the search for the perfect addition to our squad.
I'll keep you guys updated with the situation, but for the mean time you guys can check out the 'Who is Lucas Moura?' article.
