Man Utd have Launched Surprise Approach to Sign $36million Winger

Manchester United are interested in improving their attack in the winter transfer window and more than a few quality players are in the lime light.

Earlier in the day, we covered a report (via Mirror) claiming that the Red Devils are eyeing a big money move to sign Dybala from Italian side Juventus.

On the other hand, reports in France suggest that United are looking to sign Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain. According to Le10Sport, Jose Mourinho has launched initial approaches to lure the Brazilian winger to Old Trafford.

The French source have mentioned that there is no real indication of an official offer but contact has been made by Man United.

In my opinion, the approach made by the Old Trafford club is quite surprising. Lucas has been a bench warmer for Ligue 1 leaders since the arrival of Neymar at the club. In the current campaign, he has not started a single game under the management of Emery. Overall, he has just played for 79 minutes (6 apps) scored 1 goal and provided 1 assist.

Le10Sport have claimed that United’s first approaches do not seem fruitful as they have not planned to offer the sum that PSG hope to get from Moura’s sale. Back in November, the French source claimed that the Samba winger would cost around 30 million euros ($36million).

Moura has played 35 times for the senior national side and needs regular first team football in the second half of the campaign to earn a place in Brazil’s World Cup squad. In your opinion, is Lucas good enough to improve Man United’s attack?
