‘Absolute bargain’ – Man United fans urge club to complete winger’s transfer in January

Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to express our satisfaction about the news that broke out on Tuesday that the club is ever closer to signing PSG winger, Lucas Moura as reports suggest that the Brazilian has agreed personal terms with the club. The 25-year-old attacking midfielder is keen to leave Paris in a bid to find regular first team action, as he has only managed 72 minutes of league football this season.

The arrivals of the likes of Mbappe and Cavani have pushed the player to a peripheral role at the club and he is keen to leave the club to resurrect his career.

For much of last summer Jose Mourinho prioritised the addition of a direct, pacy winger but Inter Milan proved firm in their stance of not letting Ivan Perisic leave San Siro, though the Portuguese may get his wish in the form of Lucas Moura. The player’s stock has fallen in recent years due to a lack of game time and form loss, but on his way can cause trouble for any defence in world football with his trickery and dribbling. Below are some of the best tweets by United fans urging the club to wrap up the deal.

The only snag about the deal is that we want a loan deal till the end of the season with an option to buy while his club want an outright sale of around £35m to help their quest to meet UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations. Unai Emery, the PSG coach doesn’t think too highly of him and feels he is dispensable at the club given that they boast a number of other star players to negate his departure.

Moura will add directness to our team as we currently don’t have natural wingers that can stretch opposition defenders and whip in good crosses from the flanks.

Moura has scored 45 goals in 228 appearances for Les Rouge-et-Bleu since joining in January 2013
