A bad news?
Well Sir Alex seemed very keen to sign this youngster. He even left his team in the tour to make sure the deal with the Brazilian and Robin Van Persie succeeded. Early reports revealed the positive signs even though Man United offers been rejected twice. But that not make Sir Alex to stop trying getting the young Brazilian signature. Things got more encouraging when Moura's parent came to England and visited Old Trafford.
However thing quickly changed when the oil back club Paris St Germain entered the fray. Man United was easily out muscled financially by the French club. Reports revealed that Man United is almost certain to miss out on transfer target Lucas Moura as the player had told a Brazilian TV that he could leave in the January transfer window to Paris Saint-Germain. Lucas Moura expressed his desire to stay with Sao Paulo until January in order to compete for the title and Copa Libertadores with the Brazilian club but admitted he had spoken to Thiago Silva and sporting director Leonardo about a potential move to Paris.
So Man United had missed out another great talent. Is that will be costly to Man United aimed to regain the BPL crown. Sir Alex said to be furious after he failed to sign Eden Hazard, again due to financial factor, as most people believed. Now he failed to get another one.
I believed a great club like Man United need not to rue the failing of signing big names. Man United already had big players in the squad. If we look into the reserve there more talents just waiting to break into the main squad. There are Ryan Tunnicliffe, Jesse Lingard, Will Keane and Recce Brown, that ready to fill any void in Man United first team. Man United already lost Paul Pogba and rebellious Ravel Morrison, also Zeki Fryers, but youngsters that still at club are equal to those had left.
They might no have big games experience yet. But Sir Alex had proved the critics wrong when he fielded the famous class of 92 in his line up. Boys still can win the title.
