Liverpool offered chance to hijack Man Utd's £40m winger transfer

Liverpool have been offered the chance to hijack Manchester United's proposed deal to sign Paris Saint-Germain attacker Lucas Moura, according to a report in the Express.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are now on a warm-weather training camp in Dubai ahead of their Premier League clash with Stoke at Old Trafford on Monday night.

In case you didn't know.

.

This season he has made only five appearances in Ligue 1, all as a substitute, scoring once and providing one assist.

Following the overwhelming performances PSG showcased in the summer window, spending £202m on Neymar and being obliged to spend £166m for Mbappe next summer, the club faces the likelihood of UEFA sanctions.

The Brazil global has already rejected offers from other clubs and only has eyes for a move to Old Trafford, but PSG's determination to offload him on a permanent basis has so far prevented a deal from being struck.

The Man United boss has responded to a galling 0-0 draw with Southampton by giving his attacking players, along with Paul Pogba, greater freedom to roam the pitch in an attempt to make his side less predicable in attack - a formula that worked wonders during the 2-0 win at Goodison Park.

They must muster up at least €75m by the end of this year's campaign to meet the Financial Fair Play targets. Today, Liverpool are linked with Lucas Moura... Still supremely talented and yet to reach full potential, the Brazilian might just burst into life under the astute guidance of Jose Mourinho.

UOL Esporte now report Moura feels inhibited by the exorbitant valuation placed upon him and feels PSG's stance could wreck his move to Manchester.
