Manchester United 'target' Lucas Moura says transfer talk is 'just speculation'
Wednesday 11 July 2012
Brazilian wonderkid Lucas Moura has said he is not concerned about his future despite rumours continuing to link him Manchester United.
The Red Devils are not the only club thought to be pursuing the midfielder, as Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea are all thought to be keen on him.
His father has already held talks with the Italians this week, while Manchester United are thought to have sent negotiators to meet with Sao Paulo officials to discuss a potential £30m transfer.
Inter have reportedly offered £19.7m, falling well short of the Brazilian club’s valuation of their prize asset, leaving United as the front-runners.
"I know nothing concrete, just speculation and interest," Moura told Lancenet.
"I'm glad that a big European team showed interest, but I stay out of this, my agent deals with that.
"I don't want to worry about that, I just want to play football."
The youngster also insists that he is not concerned with his valuation: "I'm not the one who sets my transfer value, the club do. I just play football."
