thumbnail Hello,

The Brazil international's representative reveals that the 20-year-old was close to a switch to the Serie A side before PSG's interest materialised

Lucas Moura's agent has revealed that his client could have been sold to Inter for €25 million earlier this summer.

The Brazilian winger eventually agreed a reported €44.5 million transfer to Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain, which will go through in January 2013, ending a drawn-out saga involving the Nerazzurri, Les Parisiens and Manchester United.

However, the player's representative has now revealed that the 20-year-old could have sealed a move to Milan, before also agreeing a move to England as PSG's interest began to materialise.

"If Lucas had forced Sao Paulo's hand, then he would've been sold to Inter for €25m several weeks ago," his representative Wagner Ribeiro told Bom Dia.

"After he said no to Inter, Sao Paulo had agreed a deal with Manchester United for €36m. However, then Leonardo's proposal from PSG arrived."

Moura featured and scored in the club's 3-0 Serie A win over Ponte Preta on Saturday night.
