Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura says a move to the Premier League could interest him at some point down the line following reported interest from Manchester United and Liverpool.
United were on the brink of signing Moura from Sao Paulo in 2012 until Paris Saint-Germain entered the fray. Eager to demonstrate their new-found financial muscle, the Ligue 1 side offered €45m for the then-19-year-old, an offer United refused to match.
Three years later, L'Equipe claim United had revived their interest in the Brazil international with manager Louis van Gaal eager to bolster his attacking options with a wide option who has "speed and creativity."
Liverpool have also been credited with interest in the 23-year-old however with reports claiming the club have already made an approach to PSG to make their interest known.
But while Lucas is flattered to be linked with the Premier League giants, he sees little reason to league the Parc des Princes.
"I am pleased with the interest of big clubs in me – if it is true it shows that they are watching me and happy with my football," Lucas told SporTV, Goal report. "But my head is focused on PSG, I never thought of leaving here and I want to achieve my goals here."
The Brazilian star refused to completely rule out a move to England, however. "In football, you don't even know about tomorrow. The Premier League is the strongest league and if tomorrow or later an opportunity comes and I am not happy here, of course I will have to think about it."
While Moura will not be available, both Liverpool and United are expected to be active during the January transfer window. Former Reds striker John Aldridge predicts the Merseyside club will make at least one addition in the New Year, while Louis van Gaal has spoken openly over the club's need for a winger and possibly cover for the injured Luke Shaw.
