Premier League Transfer News — 05 August 2012

Sky Sports are reporting that Manchester United are close to sealing a deal for Brazilian wonderkid Lucas Moura.

The 19 year-old Sao Paulo star is highly-rated and signing him would represent a big coup for Red Devils.


The youngster is one of the hottest properties in the world game. Lucas has also been heavily linked with moves to Italian giants Inter and Spanish champions Real Madrid. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has stayed behind from the clubs tour of Norway to make sure that the deal goes through.


Lucas Moura is regarded as one of the best prospects that Brazil has produced in a long time. He is part of the next generation of young Brazilian starlets that seem to be ready to take the world by storm.

He is currently in England taking part in the Olympics with his national team. Moura is a young player with vision and an eye for a goal, and the touch of arrogance that every great player possesses.

He could just be the creative talent that United have lacked in recent years. Signing a creative midfielder could be the difference between success and failure for United this season. The Red Devils have already signed talented Japanese midfielder Shinji Kagawa, but are still in need of midfield reinforcements.


A host of top South American players have failed to impress in the Premier League. South American players seem to find the change of lifestyle and culture hard to live with. However, should Moura settle well in England then he will have a good chance of fulfilling his immense potential.

If United tie up the deal then he could one of the most exciting players to have arrived in the Premier League for along time. The English top flight would certainly be a brighter place for the presence of the young Brazilian.

Could the signing of Lucas Moura be the key to success for Manchester United this season?
