Lucas Moura to Manchester United

Football News

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.
