PSG could be ready to give up on Manchester United & Arsenal transfer target

Paris Saint-Germain are ready to give up on Brazil forward Lucas Moura, as the attacker has failed to achieve the heights expected of him, according to sources in France.

According to France Football [as per Le 10 Sport], Lucas Moura will be shown the exit door at PSG if he failes to “lift his level of play quickly.” The report continues that the club are willing to give up on their long-term commitment to Brazilian players and offload Moura should he fail to significantly improve his game.

So far this season, the 23-year-old has made 12 appearances for the reigning French champions, starting ten and coming on as a substitute on two occasions. He has scored three goals and contributed one assist, having scored seven and contributed five assists in 29 league outings last term.

However, despite these returns, Moura is yet to repay the £44.3 million Paris spent to bring him to the Parc des Princes in 2012.

Should PSG decide to offload Lucas, Manchester United could be set to pounce; the Red Devils were keen on the forward back when he featured in the Brazilian top flight with Sao Paulo, only to miss out to the reigning Ligue 1 champions.

Similarly, both Liverpool and Arsenal were linked with the forward earlier this year [Express], and either side may yet move to bring the talented—if unwanted—star to England.
