Lucas agent admits Sao Paulo star wants him to continue Man Utd talks

The agent of Lucas Moura says the Sao Paulo star wants him to continue to negotiate terms with Manchester United. Ribeiro is keeping the door open regarding a move to Old Trafford after saying Moura is happy for talks with United to continue.

Ribeiro, though, also admitted that the highly-rated midfielder has no problem remaining with Sao Paulo, if the Brazilian club's demands are not met.

"The player is my boss, I always talk to him," Ribeiro told Radio Globo.

"He determines what I do, my objectives. If he says that he doesn't want to leave Sao Paulo, I won't even listen to the offer.

"He told me to keep negotiating when I talked about Manchester United's interest.

"It's a great offer. If it was an irrecusable one, he would leave, but he is happy at Sao Paulo too. If he stays there, life goes on."
