Manchester United are lining up a £30million for Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfielder Lucas Moura, according to the Daily Star.

Red Devils boss David Moyes watched Moura in action against Bordeaux on Tuesday as he continued his scouting mission across Europe.

Moyes was extremely impressed with Moura and is now said to be weighing up a bid for the 21-year-old Brazilian international.

Manchester United were interested in signing Moura from Sao Paulo in 2012 but lost out in the race for his signature to Ligue 1 moneybags PSG.

The Ligue 1 leaders are reportedly willing to sell Moura if Manchester United match PSG's £30million estimation.

PSG forked out £37million on Moura in the summer of 2012 but are not worried about losing £7million on the Brazilian playmaker as he earns a staggering £120,000-a-week.

Moura, who has been capped 31 times by Brazil, has failed to hold down a regular first-team place in Laurent Blanc's side so may be keen on moving to Old Trafford either in January or at the end of the season.
