Moura swoop ruled out
Sao Paulo say they have no intention of selling Lucas Moura despite reports claiming that Manchester United are ready to bid £26m.
Reds boss Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed he wants to bring in at least one more player this summer and Moura is said to be on his wanted list, while Chelsea are also known to be keen. Reports have claimed United are lining up a massive bid for the 19-year-old but Sao Paulo president Juvenal Juvencio says they will resist the temptation to cash in on the starlet. "It is a risk not selling Lucas, but we are going to take it," Juvencio has been quoted as saying. Whether the Brazilians will have a change of heart if a firm bid is made, remains to be seen but for now they are digging their heals in and are refusing to sell. Real Madrid have also been linked with the player who is one of the most exciting young talents in South American football.
