Potential XI: How Manchester United could line up with Lucas Moura

The January transfer window is now open so clubs are working hard trying to strengthen their squads for the second half of the season and put deals in place for the summer.

Sao Paulo, who were in pursuit of Lucas Moura, have made a decision to end the chase, with reports in Brazil claiming the winger is only contracting with United if he were to leave his current side Paris Saint Germain.

Tottenham want Lucas Moura, but only on loan.

Moura, 25, has been told his can leave the Ligue 1 giants this month with United interested in taking him on loan for the rest of 2017-18 season.

Although Lucas scored 12 goals and provided five assists in thirty-seven league appearances last season, he has been pushed down the pecking order by the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in the French capital.

The story comes after reports in Italy claimed that Lucas had agreed to sign for the Red Devils, but that a fee had yet to be agreed between the two clubs.

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.

Lucas was Brazil's most in demand player in 2012 and PSG beat competition from Manchester United to sign him.

Jurgen Klopp is in the market for attacking reinforcements following Philippe Coutinho's £142m move to Barcelona and Moura has been linked with a move to Anfield in the past.

UOL Esporte now report Moura feels inhibited by the exorbitant valuation placed upon him and feels PSG's stance could wreck his move to Manchester.
