Manchester United transfer target Lucas Moura has revealed the decision over his future rests with his club, Sao Paulo, and his agent.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, Moura has played down reports linking him with a move to Serie 'A' giants Inter Milan, and instead is focused on this summer's Olympic Games.

The Brazil star travels to London as part of Mano Menezes' squad for the games, and the Samba Boys' are red-hot favourites to take home gold next month. As well as the Sao Paulo midfielder, Menezes can call on South American sensation Neymar, Chelsea's £25million target Oscar and AC Milan frontman Alexandre Pato.

And Moura insists he's completely focused on this summer's competition, despite the intense speculation surrounding his future.

"I don't know about anything concrete," said Moura. "I prefer to stay outside of these things. I have my father and my agent to work on that. I don't want it to interfere with my work; I have to focus on the Games."

The Sao Paulo star already has 15 caps for the Brazil national team, and the skilful attacker has been linked with a move to a number of Europe's biggest clubs, including Manchester United, Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

But when asked about a proposed €25million agreement securing his transfer to Inter Milan, Moura said: "It's Sao Paulo who have to decide."

Sir Alex Ferguson is thought to be a big admirer of the starlet, and United were believed to have been willing to bid up to £30million to bring the player to Old Trafford.
