Jose Mourinho is looking to reinforce his attacking options, while Arsene Wenger has made a decision on one of his stars, according to Wednesday’s papers.



Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is desperate to land PSG winger Lucas Moura this month, according to a report.

The Sun claims that the Red Devils’ boss has an eye on the Brazil forward, who is out of favour in the French capital.

As a result, Mourinho reportedly wants to bring in the 25-year-old on loan in January, however PSG want to add a condition to the deal.

The Ligue 1 leaders have apparently told United that they will only agree if it leads to a permanent deal next summer, for a fee of around £40million.

Lucas scored 19 goals in 52 appearances for the Parisiens last season, having signed for the club from Sao Paolo back in 2012.
