Manchester United look to seal Moura deal

According to reports Manchester United have agreed a 26 million Pounds deal to sign Lucas Moura from Sao Paolo. Leading European clubs Chelsea and Inter Milan had been linked to the attacker but it is United who have reached a deal with the player's club. 

Moura is currently part of the Brazil Olympic Squad. 

This signing has been denied by Ferguson but the United boss confirmed interest in the player and that they were in talks with the player's club whilst considering other options to improve the squad. 

United arrived in China yesterday as they continue their pre-season tour having spent the past week in South Africa. After a tame 1-1 draw against Ajax Cape Town where Bebe scored a late equaliser, United will hope to improve when they come up against Shanghai Shenhua on Wednesday night who now have a reconciled partnership of Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka. 

Sir Alex Ferguson has publicly defended United's owners, the Glazer family. The manager praises the owners for the sensible management of the club and touches on the club's recent successes of four Premier League titles and a European Cup as proof of the club's consistency and continued competitiveness. 

Also, Michael Carrick has broken his silence on his England absence saying that he was disappointed when he was not called up for the European Championship squad following the withdrawals of Frank Lampard and Gareth Barry through injury but declares that he would consider the call if Hodgson were to select him.
