A Brazilian star has admitted that, at one point, he thought he would be joining Manchester United instead of another European powerhouse.
Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura has revealed how he nearly signed for the Red Devils before moving to France, suggesting that a move to United had been all but wrapped up.
"I was very close to joining Manchester United," he told the Daily Telegraph.
"It nearly happened but, at the last minute, Leonardo called me, and spoke to me and my parents.
"It was a very difficult moment because suddenly I had to make a choice when I thought I was joining Manchester United.
"I thought about it a lot. I talked about it with my family, and I made my choice.
"Football is like that. You have to choose a team."
Moura has played 159 times for PSG since his arrival in 2013, scoring 23 goals and assisting a further 36 strikes.
