Manchester United have been keeping up with the agents of the Brazilian attacker for a while but are yet to make a formal offer to PSG.

The Red Devils are favourites in signing the PSG striker and are quite keen on making this January transfer move a reality as they remain in close contact with his representatives.

The 20-time English champions have yet to make a formal bid for the Brazilian but they have been in touch with his advisors over a significant period of time having originally targeted the player as a 19-year-old when he was still playing in his homeland with Sao Paulo. But after being outbid for his signature in 2012 by PSG, United continue to be admirers.

United boss, Jose Mourinho recently named Lucas as one of the PSG stars being overlooked since the record-breaking summer arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

"What Paris Saint Germain did this season with Neymar and Mbappe, they got two of probably the four best attacking players in the world. They got two at the same time,” said Mourinho.

"And then players like Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler, Javier Pastore, Lucas… they are second choices. Money makes a difference."
