Reports: Jose Mourinho Wants Brazilian StarIn January
ManchesterUnited manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly looking to bring in a Brazil international in the January transfer window.
According to The Sun, the Portuguese tactician is interested in bringing in Santos star Luca Lima on a free transfer.
The 27-year-old is apparently set to leave his Brazilian club at the end of the season, as his contract has come to an end.
The player’s agent, Lucas Badia, told a Turkish publication that there are many suitors interested in his client's services, Serie A currently being their preferred option.
"Inter, Roma and Barcelona are keeping close tabs on Lucas, Manchester United want him. I think we would be well suited to the Serie A, but we will see,” Badia told Haberturk.
"His contract ends on 31 December, and there are many clubs interested, but I am not sure what Santos is trying to do.
"Crystal Palace made a €15 million offer while Fenerbahce made a €20 million bid but for some reason neither has been accepted.”
The attacking midfielder has made 14 appearances for the Selecao since 2015 and has scored two goals.
