Manchester United transfer news: Lucas Moura ‘agrees to join Utd’ as PSG hold out for £35m fee

Deal could be held up with Red Devils wanting an initial loan move but Ligue 1 giants only willing to discuss permanent deal

Manchester United have reportedly agreed personal terms with Lucas Moura ahead of a potential £35million move from Paris Saint-Germain.

Jose Mourinho is desperately trying to bolster his attacking ranks this January after missing out on a winger in the summer.

And now the Brazilian has agreed to leave the French capital for Old Trafford, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

However, United and PSG remain locked in talks as they aim to thrash out an agreement over the fee for the winger.

Lucas, 25, has played just 72 minutes in Ligue 1 this season.

After their heavy outlay in the summer, including the world-record signing of Neymar for £198m, PSG are willing to allow him to leave to help go towards balancing the books with financial fair play in mind.

It is believed that the Red Devils only want Lucas to initially join on loan until the end of the season with an option of a permanent deal.

But PSG are only interested in doing business upfront.

They have set their price at £35m and are determined not to budge.

That means that the Ligue 1 leaders could accept a lower fee for the Lucas.

Meanwhile, a move to the Red Devils is not set in stone – even though he has reached an agreement with them.
