Paris Saint-Germain have launched a last-minute bid to hijack Lucas Moura’s move to Manchester United.

Reports in Brazil claim the Sao Paulo playmaker has virtually agreed to join the rich French club on a five-year deal.

The 19-year-old’s agent Wagner Ribeiro held talks with PSG’s sporting director Leonardo last week and watched their friendly against Barcelona before reporting back to Lucas. 

United had been confident that their pursuit was coming to an end after receiving encouragement that their £30million bid would finally be accepted.

The Old Trafford club had even prepared the ground for Lucas to have a medical over the weekend, but the Brazil national team insist they will not release him until the end of their participation in the Olympic football tournament.

But it is understood that PSG, owned by rich Qataris, are prepared to offer a better fee and terms for one of South America’s hottest prospects.

And authoritative Brazilian media outlet Globoesporte also claim that Lucas is reluctant to move to Manchester.

Agent Ribeiro also represents Robinho who has told the teenager that the northern English city is boring.
