Lucas Moura to Manchester United

Manchester United had serious interest in the acquisition of Brazilian midfielder Lucas Moura during the summer transfer window of 2012, with the club negotiating for a significant amount of time with his then employers Sao Paulo.

Paris Saint-Germain, though, emerged victorious in the race to clinch the signature of Lucas with the player arriving at the Parc des Princes for a fee of €42 million. Lucas has, however, failed to live up to expectation in Paris.

The 21-year-old is far from a guaranteed starter under Laurent Blanc, with Lucas making 12 appearances from the bench in Ligue 1 this season. A recent poll by L’Equipe saw over 82 percent of PSG fans claim that club had paid to much to sign him.
