Manchester United Chasing Lucas Lima, According to his Agent
Lucas Lima’s agent Riccardo Badia says that Manchester United are among the clubs chasing the Santos playmaker. Lima’s contract with the Brazilian club expires on 31st December and he will be a free agent in the January transfer window.
Lima was sought after by Crystal Palace last summer too, but the player rejected the move. Badia told Turkish outlet Skorer, “There’s competition from Inter, Roma, Manchester United and Barcelona are also interested. However, the player himself feels more ready for Serie A.”
Santos still hope to extend the 26 year old’s terms, but a move to Europe seems far more likely. Badia continued, “Lucas’ contract ends on December 31st. For several years the important clubs of Europe are following him.
“Crystal Palace offered €15m, Fenerbahce €20 million euros, but strangely Santos rejected them all.”
