United will need to up the ante by £4m

Lucas Moura, Brazilian forwardManchester United target Lucas Moura’s valuation is set to increase by £4 million, as Sao Paulo look to get the best price for their star player according to The Daily Mail.

The Brazil international playmaker is one of a generation of exciting young attacking players coming out of the South American nation currently, with the Red Devils fighting against Real Madrid and Inter for the prospect’s signature.

Moura is thought to be valued around the £30 million mark, with the player entitled to 20 per cent of any potential transfer fee.

However, on August 1 the player’s share is said to be ready to increase to 30 per cent, which would take the cost of the player up another £4 million.

United have sent chief scout Jim Lawlor to Brazil in an attempt to broker a deal, however Moura will be in the United Kingdom soon to compete for his country in the Olympics.
