Manchester United are reportedly making positive steps in trying to bring a new winger to the club.
According to Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport, the Red Devils have agreed personal terms with Paris Saint-Germain’s Lucas Moura.
It was widely reported in the summer that manager Jose Mourinho was keen to add a winger to his squad.
Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic was touted as a target, but in the end, the Portuguese coach did not strengthen that area.
Now, it appears that Mourinho has chosen Moura to fill that role, but Gazzetta dello Sport add that the two clubs are yet to agree on a deal.
The publication states that PSG have quoted a figure of £35m, but United are interested in striking an initial loan arrangement that will run for the rest of the season.
It seems that there is still a way off before an agreement is made, but according to members of the media, a deal is in motion.
United fans have given mixed responses to the idea of the club signing Moura, who has made five Ligue 1 appearances but none of them starts.
If correct, arriving five years too late in my view. Fergie wanted him badly summer of 2012 alongside RvP.

No thanks. May as well sign mahrez. He’s not fulfilled his potential and we don’t need cast offs.

Would happily take Lucas Moura right now. People forget he's only 25 and we're seriously lacking depth upfront #mufc

If Theo Walcott is £20m then Lucas Moura is an absolute steal for £25m #MUFC
