PSG set to hijack Lucas Moura from Man U

Published August 7th, 2012 - 10:40 GMT

Manchester United's endeavor to sign Brazilian star Lucas Moura has been dealt a severe blow after the player's representatives indicated they were ready to agree to terms forwarded by well-off French club Paris Saint Germain.

Moura's possible deal with PSG has been attacked by Inter Milan, who had also been keen on the player.

Inter president Massimo Moratti claimed that Sao Paulo had agreed a deal with PSG for 35 million pounds, which is five million pounds more than the Brazilian club were poised to accept from United.

"We would never have gone up to that sum. In any case, there are no regrets that we didn't finish off the move, as the cost was already pretty high a few days ago," The Daily Mail quoted Moratti, as saying.

Moura, who already has 15 caps for Brazil's senior side, is currently in England competing in the Olympic football tournament. (ANI)
