According to Tribalfootball.com, Manchester United defender Rafael da Silva has apparently told Lucas Moura to join Manchester United this season despite interest from other clubs.
Lucas Moura and Rafael are both part of Brazil’s Olympic team, which might give Rafael the chance to convince Moura that Old Trafford is the best option for his next club.
Rafael was asked after Brazil’s 2-0 win over Great Britain if he was excited at the prospect of playing with Moura on a regular basis, Rafael said:
“Yes,Yes! I have told Lucas he should come to Manchester United”
While Rafael seems extremely enthusiastic about the possibility of Rafael heading to Manchester United, his club are yet to reach any deal with the player’s current club Sao Paulo.
As reported by ESPN, Sir Alex has already had a bid of around £25m rejected and the Sao Paulo president Juvenal Juvencio has expressed his attempts to keep Moura at the club. Earlier this week Brazilian news agency Globo Esporte quoted a source close to the club hierarchy as saying: “Football is about winning titles and there is nothing more important. He will be an important player in any titles this club may win.”
Manchester United have already signed two players this season but with Moura, Leighton Baines and Robin Van Persie all linked to major transfers in to the club, Sir Alex could still be extremely busy in the transfer market as he sets to begin the battle with City for the title in less than month.
