Mourinho targets PSG star to bolster struggling attack

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho wants to revive his struggling attack by signing PSG winger Lucas Moura, according to reports in The Sun.

The 25-year-old almost joined Old Trafford from Brazilian side Corinthians in 2013 before deciding to move to France instead.

Mourinho wants to add more pace to his options on the right side of midfield, and sees Moura who is blessed with frightening pace as the ideal candidate to fulfil that role.

The Brazilian international has won four Ligue Un titles during his time in Paris, but he has fallen down the pecking order after his club broke the world transfer record with the signing of his compatriot Neymar.

United want to sign the player on loan until the end of next season although PSG want to insert a clause in any deal that would lead to a permanent switch worth £40 million next summer.
