Manchester United are believed to have made an initial offer for Sao Paulo wonderkid Lucas Moura as they attempt to complete a deal before he travels to England for the Olympics.
The midfielder has revealed that he is willing to listen to offers from European clubs but he has certainly never suggested that he wanted to leave the club he came through as a youngster.
"I cannot guarantee that I will stay until the end of my contract. Much has changed and the situation is not up to me anymore," said Lucas, as quoted in the Daily Mirror.
"I don't have a crazy desire to leave but when the time comes I will speak with my family and decide what is best for my future. I'm very calm and down to earth about it. My job is to play football so that these clubs continue to be interested."
Yesterday it was revealed that Manchester United were sending a number of officials to meet with Lucas' father as they attempted to persuade him to choose a move to Old Trafford.
There has been no official work from either club or the players representatives but it would appear as though United are keen to bring him to the club this summer.
Lucas is viewed as one of the best young prospects coming through the Brazilian system, along with Leandro Damiao and Neymar, and they are keen for him to play at the Olympics which is being used as preparation for the 2014 World Cup.
United therefore hope that they can tie up a deal before he is viewed on the world stage at the London Olympics and his fee rises even higher.
