Huge bid lodged by Manchester United?

Reports in Brazil suggest that Manchester United are deadly serious about their interest in Lucas Moura and have accordingly lodged a second bid of 38m Euros for the Sao Paulo playmaker.

ESPN says that a first bid of 32m Euro was rejected last week and the new offer has been given a similar response.

If Manchester United are indeed continuing to bid for the starlet they must have been given some encouragement by the Brazilian club. Manchester United don’t need a raft of players to improve their squad. They just need that bit of extra fairy dust that has been missing since Ronaldo and Tevez jumped ship. Moura could just be the man to bring champagne football back to Old Trafford.

We think that he would be an absolute gem of a player at Manchester United and will continue to monitor developments.

    If signing maura will b difficult 4 man u den let farguson go 4 erickson intead of placing dat huge amount of on maura. Erickson iz even waiting 4 man u bid and he iz willing 2 play 4 man u, i tink iz beta 4 man u 2 buy d player dat iz willing 2 play 4 man u dan 2 spend huge money on a player dat seems he was forced 2 join man u. I tink maura wants 2 join inter so let him go if he cant join us fargie.

    manutd shuld deep dia hand in d pocket nd lure moura 2 old trafford. besides, fund is nt d prob. As a matter, lucas is a young player dat have future nd wl immensely in any competition utd is into, he is strong nd can frustrate d opponent wt d ball by creating lot of chance for his colleague thereby given d team victory al d time, other teams(club) are fully prepared 4 d upcoming season. So my suggestion is dat utd shuld pay 4 lucas nd get prepared 4 trophy lifting. Lol!

    Whilst there’s no doubt that Manchester United need to strengthen their squad, and in particular their creative midfield options, it remains to be seen whether this will be enough to topple City. Moura has the ability to be a world class player, but across the city there are Silva and Nasri who are both accomplished playmakers. It begs the question: are Man Utd clutching at straws?

    I think that morning is just too much for a young player like lucas, who knws whether powel would be much more better than him in the future compare £4m with £30m.
