United confirm Lucas interest

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed his interest in Brazil international Lucas Moura.

However, the Scot insists no deal has been agreed for the 19-year-old Sao Paulo winger. Ferguson's comments came during a press conference in Shanghai on Monday morning amid reports the two clubs had reached an agreement.

He said: "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."

The Red Devils are still exploring a variety of different transfer options, with a view to bringing in more than one player before the start of the 2012/13 season.

"We've signed two players in the summer: [Shinji] Kagawa and [Nick] Powell," added Ferguson. "We think they both have fantastic potential.

"At this moment we're looking at other options in terms of bringing other players in. We're not lying on our backsides doing nothing. We're trying hard to bring other players to the club."
