Manchester United's Jose Mourinho wants to sign Lucas Moura - agent

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho wants to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Lucas Moura, the Brazilian's agent told ESPN Brazil.

After an inconsistent start at the Parc des Princes, the 24-year-old has been a regular in Unai Emery's side this season, scoring four goals in six appearances for the defending Ligue 1 champions.

Lucas moved to PSG for around €45 million from Brazilian giants Sao Paulo in January 2013 amid interest from other clubs, including Real Madrid, where Mourinho was coach.

"Who called Lucas Moura there [to Real Madrid]? It wasn't Florentino Perez who wanted Lucas Moura, it was Mourinho," Ribeiro told television program Bola da Vez.

"Mourinho was and is passionate about Lucas Moura. So much so that now at Manchester he wants Lucas as well."

Lucas has scored 30 goals in 176 appearances since Joining PSG, and has been capped 35 times by his country, scoring four goals.
