Sir Alex Ferguson lost one of their big game players after Park Ji-Sung left Manchester United this week to join Queen Park Rangers. United are in dire need of the central midfielder who can control and dominate the game. United are lacking in central midfield since the departure of their former skipper Roy Keane.
The void left by Keane was filled by Paul Scholes untill the end of 2010-11 season. Ferguson is in search of player who can help him reclaim the title and dominate Europe once agian. United got a temporary solution to their midfield crisis last season when Ferguson got Paul Scholes out of retirement in January this year. United are looking for long term replacement for Paul Scholes.
The recent reports claim United has made a bid of £30million for the 19-year-old Brazilian Lucas Moura. Moura will be traveling with the Brazilian team for the London Olympics. Ferguson is looking to sign the Brazilian before the start of London Olympics.
The 19-year-old midfielder on Monday said that he was willing to play in Europe while United's delegation had arrived in Brazil on Tuesday after Lucas' father, who is also his agent, spoke to Inter Milan on Friday.
Moura has expressed his desire to leave Sao Paulo and want to take a new challenge by joining one of the elite clubs in Europe. Apart from United, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid are the elite clubs linked for the players move during this summer Transfer window.
However, Moura has kept the Moura wants to concentrate on playing football and wants to ignore the interest from the Europe's top clubs.
The news broke out when Moura spoke to reporters at a press conference with other members of Brazil's Olympic football squad on Monday.
"Specifically I know nothing. Just speculation - interest." Moura said
"I'm glad that a big European team is showing interest, but I stay out of it, my agent deals with those issues. I don't want to worry about that and I don't define my worth. I just want to play football." Moura added.
Moura is currently focusing on the London Olympics game and his aim is to win Gold for his Country.
"I know my father and my agent had a meeting with the president of Inter but I don't know what was said," he was quoted as saying on Monday. "Now I will go to the Olympics with my mind only on winning a gold medal."
Inter and United are two teams who would be battling to get the signature of the 19 year old Brazilian. Will Ferguson be able to sign Moura? Less than 50 days remaining in the tranfer window and United are yet to make a huge Impact on the transfer market. All in all, United need a player who can play in central midfield position and help them to regain their English Premier League dominance.686139
