Inter and Manchester United have reportedly lost out on Lucas Moura after PSG leapt to the front of the race.
The San Paolo striker has long been a target for the Nerazzurri, although President Massimo Moratti warned last week he would not break the bank for the Brazilian.
Over the past few days English newspapers reported that Lucas had undergone a medical for Manchester United, but San Paolo directors denied this story.
Now the rumour flying around Europe and South America is that Paris Saint-Germain have struck once more.
Having already secured Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Thiago Silva this summer, the French side backed by sheikhs have set their sights firmly on Lucas.
It is claimed PSG have put €45m on the table for the young forward, who will only arrive in January due to the limit on non-EU places.
PSG director Leonardo – a former Inter Coach – has very strong connections in Brazil.
