Man Utd would have to pay £47m for Internacional's Damiao

Internacional president Giovanni Luigi has admitted that Manchester United would need to pay £47million if they want Leandro Damiao.

The 23-year old striker has been tracked by the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool recently with United also believed to be very keen.

Reports have stated that the Red Devils are pondering a January move for Damiao but Luigi says that they will have to meet his buyout clause if they want to purchase the Brazilian talent.

"We aren't talking about a small team. We are talking about Internacional," Luigi told Zero Hora.

"They (Manchester United ) have to talk with Internacional, not with the player.

"If Manchester United came here today, I would ask them to pay his buyout fee. They have to know that Internacional are a big club.

"Now, Leandro Damiao only leaves if the buyout fee is paid."
