In the wake of Manchester United boss sending his chief scout to Sao Paolo to negotiate a possible transfer for Lucas Moura, Inter Milan’s director of football has followed him to the South American nation to wrap up a deal for the Nerrazuris.
The Serie A side have already had a bid rejected by Sao Paolo earlier but according to Italian newspaper Gazetta dello Sport, the Brazilian club are willing to negotiate this time. United manager had sent chief scout Jim Lawlor to thrash out a deal for the talented Brazilian international and are now set to face stiff competition from Inter.
Reports have emerged that the 19 year old has already visited the Italian club’s facilities in Milan and could be set for a move pretty soon. Moura has been one of the most sought after young footballers this transfer window and albeit ruling out a move earlier, could be tempted to join one of the biggest clubs in Europe.
Sao Paolo have climbed down from their rigid stance on the player’s value and would accept a fee in the region of £20m according to reports.
