Manchester United €33m bid rejected by São Paulo

São Paulo rejects Reds bid

That was a quick one. São Paulo didn’t even let it make through the day, and already refused Manchester United €33m bid to get Lucas Moura.

The value was revealed today, but the offer was made 40 days ago through Lucas agent Vagner Ribeiro. Manchester United said they wouldn’t raise their offer right now. It seems that São Paulo is only willing to sell the player for €40m; value that was met by Anzhi Makhachkala back in 2011 and accepted by São Paulo, but Lucas refused to move to Russia. He’d only leave São Paulo to play for a top European team.

Unfortunate for Lucas, it’s looking even harder to maintain his promise of playing in Brazil until the 2014 WC. That’s something he acknowledge in his last press conference, stating that it’d be hard to keep playing in motherland if São Paulo needs the money and the offer meets what the team is looking for. But it doesn’t mean Lucas wants to make it any easier, and he won’t let go of his transfer rights.
