Man United agree £26m deal for Moura

Brazil wonderkid is in England for the Olympics

Manchester United have reportedly agreed a staggering £26 million deal with Sao Paulo for Brazil wonderkid Lucas Moura.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is being backed by the Glazers to land the 19-year-old sensation, who appeared as a subtitute against Team GB.

The move is now down to agreeing terms with his camp, according to the Mirror.
Ferguson’s negotiators have astonishingly doubled their valuation in the talks on Lucas, who has been a target for months.

Sao Paulo have accepted the sale price on Lucas, who is in England for the Olympics, and United are confident they can come to an agreement with his agents.
Inter Milan and Chelsea also chased Lucas but backed off at the price tag. However Ferguson is determined to land a ‘worldie’ for his squad.

Meanwhile, Rafael has urged MOura to join Manchester United and has claimed his fellow Brazilian is excited about the prospect of moving to Old Trafford.

Lucas is presently part of Brazil's squad for the Olympics, alongside Rafael, and it appears the two have spoken about the chance to sign for United.
Full-back Rafael said in the Daily Star Sunday: "Yes, I have told Lucas he should come to Manchester United, of course."

And, when asked whether Lucas was excited about coming to United, Rafael replied: "Yes, yes!"
