Inter close in on Lucas?

Sky Sport 24 are reporting that Inter have agreed in principle with Sao Paulo for the transfer of Lucas Moura.

The Brazilian youngster has been regularly linked with the Nerazzurri this summer, but looked to be the subject of a bidding war between the Italians and other confirmed party Manchester United.

However, Sky Sport 24 believe that Inter now hold an advantage in proceedings, with Marco Branca, who is known to be in Brazil at the moment, reported to have agreed an initial €27m move for the 19-year-old winger.

This deal, which is said to then rise to a potential €32m figure with future bonuses included, is now understood to be waiting for President Massimo Moratti’s final yes before being completed.

Moratti commented yesterday that he was interested in the player, but reluctant to pay over his valuation.
