Man United agree transfer fee to complete first January signing

Jose Mourinho GETTY Jose Mourinho wants to sign a winger in the January window

Manchester United are hoping to seal a £22.1m deal with Paris Saint-Germain after Lucas Moura agreed to make a move to Old Trafford this month, according to a report in the Mirror.

For much of the summer, United boss, Jose Mourinho had been insistent on the club signing Ivan Perisic, the direct two-footed wide player who would have helped us peg back opponents in their own halves of the pitch.

Brazilian outlet Globo Esporte, who are often very reliable when it comes to transfer news, claim that the 25-year-old could be on his way to the club for €25 million.

The French publication claim that Lucas Moura's entourage are pushing him towards a switch to Anfield in the belief that the Merseyside outfit will be more willing to meet his asking price, having just sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for a staggering £145 million.

Especially as Sao Paulo will likely be due some of the transfer fee if a move from PSG to Manchester United is confirmed. However, with PSG looking to balance their books with the wake of Financial Fair Play sanctions hanging over them, it's reported the Ligue 1 giants have persuaded United to do a cash deal now.

Lucas Moura has had a bit-part role at PSG this season.

The player has featured just six times this season after being a permanent fixture in the team before Neymar and Kylian Mbappe were signed.

The pursuit of a right winger has been a lengthy one for Manchester United.

Mourinho has seen his free-flowing United side splutter in recent weeks as Premier League leaders City pull ever further away in the race for the title.
