Manchester United are looking to sign the out of favor Brazilian from PSG
Manchester United are looking to sign the out-of-favor Brazilian from PSG

According to Sky Sports and The Guardian, Lucas Moura is keen on joining Manchester United, with United considering a loan move until the season end or a cut down price of around €15 million for the explosive attacking midfielder as per independent.

With the Brazilian out of favor at Paris Saint-Germain & with the World Cup fast approaching, the move can be beneficial for all the concerned parties.

Since his arrival, Mourinho has filled the key positions at United but is still not satisfied with the No.10's at his disposal.

Juan Mata has been reliable but far too inconsistent to nail down a regular berth. Henrik Mkhitaryan started the season explosively but since then has dropped out of favor with his substitution at halftime against Derby County the latest indication that Mourinho has no trust in him.

The lack of a regular & consistent no.10 behind the striker has also affected Romelu Lukaku, with Belgian's goals & confidence looking dried up. The move for Moura can be the shot in the arm that Manchester United has been looking for.

Here are the 5 reasons that Moura can be a stellar signing for Manchester United

Sir Alex tried to sign the Brazilian but then rebuffed at the fee

This isn't the first time that Manchester United has tried to sign the Brazilian. Sir Alex Ferguson wanted to sign the then 20-year-old Moura from Sao Paulo but then rebuffed by the fee demanded from the Brazilian club. Moura ended up signing for PSG in January 2013.

The Brazilian has been on United's watch list for a long time and the club knows exactly what they are getting and United will be able to sign him for far less than when they tried to sign him the first time.
