Man Utd delegation in Brazil today to kickoff Lucas talks

Manchester United's pursuit of Sao Paulo sensation Lucas is set to intensify today.

The Daily Mail says United are stepping up their £30million bid for Sao Paulo midfielder Lucas amid competition from Inter Milan.

A United delegation is due to arrive in Brazil on Tuesday to open talks after the 19-year-old's father spoke to Inter on Friday.

United want to tie up a deal ahead of the player joining Brazil's Olympic squad.

They were previously told by Lucas's father that he was destined for Real Madrid but they have switched to Luka Modric.
