Old Trafford side close in on youngster.
Moura eyes Man United switch as Brazil ace expresses doubt over Sao Paulo future
Lucas Moura has opened the door to a move to Manchester United after admitting he could have played his last match for Sao Paulo.
But the 19-year-old admits ‘much has changed’, which will encourage United to fight with current front runners for his signature, Inter Milan.
Moura is interested in a move to Old Trafford
‘I cannot guarantee that I will stay until the end of my contract,’ he said.
‘Much has changed and the situation is not up to me any more.
‘I know my father and my agent had a meeting (with Inter) but I don’t know what was said. Now I will go to the Olympics with my mind only on winning a gold medal.’

So helpfully Lucas Moura will be in London so that Sir Alex Ferguson and Man United’s money men can discuss a possible move to Old Trafford. The highly rated teenage attacking midfielder is apparently ready to leave Sao Paulo and the Scot leads the chase for his services.
Ferguson could well do with an injection of creativity to his midfield. Michael Carrick put in a decent campaign last term but is clearly in the latter stages of his career and he isn’t as advanced as he once was, the same could be said of Paul Scholes, or in his heyday netted goals galore and laid on bundles of assists. Now the veteran is more of a buffer to prevent the opposition from advancing whilst cleverly distributing the ball.
Anderson appears on his way out, Tom Cleverley is perhaps still too raw to be counted on regularly so a move for would be a clever, and expensive option to consider.
Over the last two seasons Lucas Moura has weighed in with 22 goals and 15 assists and is now a regular in the Brazilian national team set-up.
Sir Alex Ferguson will have to overcome interest from both Real Madrid and Chelsea to land the 19 year old.
