Man-U agree £26m deal for Brazil superteen Lucas


MANCHESTER — Manchester United have agreed a staggering £26 million deal with Sao Paulo for Brazil sensation Lucas Moura.

Boss Sir Alex Ferguson is being backed by the Glazers to land the 19-year-old wonder boy, who appeared as a sub against Team GB, and the move is now down to agreeing terms with his camp
Ferguson’s negotiators have astonishingly doubled their valuation in the talks on Lucas, who has been a target for months as the Mirror first revealed in March.

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.

Lucas is looked after by his father and an agency and they want a big payment too, with United trying to agree those figures in a hurry.

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.
Amazingly Lucas would need a permit appeal to be allowed to play in England, but with the money involved the authorities are sure to be convinced he is in the “special talent” category.
