Jose Mourinho wants Manchester United to sign Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain this month, according to reports.

The 25-year-old has barely featured for PSG this season having made just five appearances as a substitute in Ligue 1 plus another off the bench in the Coupe de la Ligue.

The Ligue 1 leaders are ready to cash in on the Brazilian, who has attracted interest from Chinese Super League side Beijing Guoan.

The Sun claims that United are exploring the possibility of a deal, but PSG’s high transfer fee could be a stumbling block.
