Manchester United have agreed a fee with Sao Paulo for star midfielder Lucas.

The Mirror says United are closing in on a staggering £26 million deal with Sao Paulo for Brazil sensation Lucas.

Boss Sir Alex Ferguson is being backed by the Glazers to land the 19-year-old wonder boy, who appeared as a sub against Team GB, and the move is now down to agreeing terms with his camp.

Sao Paulo have accepted the sale price on Lucas, who is in England for the Olympics, and United are confident they can come to an agreement with his agents.

Lucas is looked after by his father and an agency and they want a big payment too, with United trying to agree those figures in a hurry.
