Moura is looking to kick-start his career ahead of the World Cup, however any potential deal could be held up by his wife Larissa Saad.
Saad who has just become a mother has cold feet about swapping Paris for England after speaking to Angel Di Maria's wife Jorgelina Cardoso about life in the North-West.
Di Maria moved to Old Trafford from Real Madrid in 2014 for a British record £60million.
But the Argentine star and his family struggled to adapt to life in Manchester and fell out with former boss Louis Van Gaal.
Cardoso was aid to be too scared to return to the family home after an attempted robbery while they were at home with their baby daughter in Cheshire.
