According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Manchester United will look to sign Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura.

Manchester United have been linked with Brazilian global and PSG star Lucas Moura since the start of the winter transfer window.

Harry Kane has been the only consistent performer for Tottenham, who were one of the most risky sides in England last season.

And after seeing their player restricted to just 72 minutes of Ligue 1 football this season, Lucas' camp - led by agent Wagner Ribeiro - have begun the search for a Premier League club willing to end his PSG exile and reinvigorate his push for a place in Brazil's World Cup squad.

Manchester United are reportedly one of many clubs keeping tabs on Brazil global Lucas Moura.

The signing of Neymar in the summer has contributed to less game time for the forward who also sees himself behind Kylian Mbappe in the pecking order.

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.

Moura wants PSG to lower their demands for him.

Lucas Moura has struggled for game time this season and is keen to leave the club in January. He thinks that such a price tag would drive Manchester United away and therefore, he wants the club to accept an agreement for half the amount i.e. 20 million euros ($24million).

"Right towards the end of my time at United we were pursuing Lucas Moura, the immensely talented right winger who, at the time, was playing in his native Brazil for Sao Paulo", Ferguson wrote.

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