São Paulo interested in Lucas Moura loan


Earlier in the week, Le Parisien reported that the Paris club were asking for a price of €40m (£32.5m) for Lucas amid reported interest from Manchester United, and with the players representatives pushing for a move to fellow Premier League side Liverpool.

These expensive additions mean PSG are likely to push for a sale to balance the books, but if they get no bidders near their market value, then sending him on loan could become viable.

Reports have claimed the 25-year-old is on his way to Manchester United, with the player supposedly agreeing to move to Old Trafford.

However, the big-money arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have shunted him down the pecking order and he has not started a game this season, making just six appearances in total.

The Man United boss has responded to a galling 0-0 draw with Southampton by giving his attacking players, along with Paul Pogba, greater freedom to roam the pitch in an attempt to make his side less predicable in attack - a formula that worked wonders during the 2-0 win at Goodison Park.

PSG need to sell some players so as to not fall foul of UEFA's financial fair play rule and it seems like manager Unai Emery has given the green light to sell the talented Brazilian star.

He joined them back in 2013 from Sao Paulo.

He was also happy to remain in the French capital for the first-half of the season while his wife Larissa Saad was pregnant, but after the couple celebrated the birth of their first child in November they are now said to like the idea of moving to England.

Moura wants PSG to lower their demands for him.
