Manchester United have reportedly asked Paris Saint-Germain about the availability of Lucas Moura this summer as the Red Devils prepare a swoop for the Brazilian ace.
The 24-year-old has been an ideal part of Unai Emery’s plans this season, registering 50 appearances in all competition, seeing the net 16 times and providing 11 assists.
However, in a season in which the Ligue 1 giants look set to fall short of their objectives, changes could be made this summer and it appears as though United are ready to take advantage.
According to L’Equipe, as reported by the Metro, the Premier League giants have made an enquiry with PSG over the Brazilian international, although they will face competition from Atletico Madrid.
It’s added that the winger is aware that the Ligue 1 outfit will sell him if the right offer comes in, but he remains happy in the French capital alongside fellow Brazilians Marquinhos and Thiago Silva.
Having said that, surely the Brazilian contingent at Old Trafford with Juan Mata and the likes will help him adapt to life at Manchester, and so our side could have a real shot at landing his signature this summer if Jose Mourinho is keen to add him to his squad.
Moura is valued at £30m as per the report and has two years remaining on his current contract. However, if Emery is to be replaced this summer, it could have a negative impact on his future with PSG and so Man United will likely be monitoring his situation with a view of making their move ahead of next season.
With a return to the Champions League likely for us, the Portuguese tactician will be out to strengthen his squad where possible to ensure that they can cope with competing on various fronts.
