CBF denies 'Lucas Moura in Manchester United medical' claims
The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) have denied media reports that Lucas Moura will undertake a medical at Manchester United this Sunday.
Lucas, 19, was part of the Brazil Olympic side which progressed to the semi-final stage in Middlesborough on Saturday and travelled with the squad to Manchester on Sunday.
Several news outlets have reported that a deal has been agreed with São Paulo over a £30 million move to the Red Devils, with the Daily Mail in particular reporting that he would undergo a medical on Sunday.
The CBF, though, has denied that they have received a request for the player's release and insist that they will not allow Lucas to undergo a medical during the tournament.
Reports of the move nearing completion emerged on Saturday night and on Sunday were further strengthened with ESPN adding their name to the list of outlets confirming the reports.
Brazil will take on South Korea in Manchester on Tuesday with a place in the Olympic final at stake as the Seleção look to claim their first ever triumph at the event.
