Lucas Moura to Manchester United?

Lucas Moura to Manchester United?

In 2012, Manchester united supposed they had secured the capture of Moura from Brazilian outfit Sao Paulo, only for a twist in events as the winger opted for Paris Saint-Germain.

A potential stumbling block in the move is United's desire to sign the winger on loan, whereas the Brazilian would prefer a permanent move.

Brazil wing forward Lucas Moura has emerged as a key target for reigning Europa League champions Manchester United.

The likes of Dele Alli, Son Heung-Min and the recently returned Erik Lamela have blown hot and cold, and Mauricio Pochettino is willing to dip into the market for a winger.

This season he has made only five appearances in Ligue 1, all as a substitute, scoring once and providing one assist. Capable of playing on either side of the pitch, Moura will also bring versatility, pace, and dynamism to the Manchester United attack. The Red Devils have somewhat lacked in attack, with their early season form petering out and would want to make use of the January window to solve the problems on the right wing.

The generation share of hydropower was more than 7% in 2017 and is forecast to be slightly lower than 7% in both 2018 and 2019. By many estimates US production is set to take off this year - which is concerning for many other producer nations.

After a lavish summer of spending that saw the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, PSG face the possibility of Uefa sanctions unless the club raise €75m before the end of the season. The French giants want 40 million euros for the Brazil worldwide, but Manchester United are believed to be ready to offer half that.

And Moura, who has endured a hard past 12 months in Paris, could provide some added stimulus in the final third ahead of further investment over the summer.

Moura has already turned down a move to Claudio Ranieri's FC Nantes while Le Parisien claim he considers a move to any French club as a step backwards.

PSG are looking to offload players, especially to balance their books after the huge outlays on Neymar and Mbappe.
