Tottenham make contact over move for Manchester United target Lucas Moura

12 January 2018

Lucas Moura's former club Sao Paolo are confident that the winger is close to a transfer to Manchester United from Paris Saint-Germain this month, according to reports in Brazil.

Still supremely talented and yet to reach full potential, the Brazilian might just burst into life under the astute guidance of Jose Mourinho.

Lucas has made it clear that he has Manchester United as his favourite destination, and that's something PSG don't like much.
