Sao Paulo chief Cunha demands Man Utd go higher for Lucas

Sao Paulo chief Marco Aurelio Cunha has called on Manchester United to up their bid for Lucas Moura.

Cunha confirmed to TMW that United have offered €35 million for the midfielder and hints they're the only club currently in negotiations.

"Manchester United have made a very important proposal, exactly equal to €35 million. They should offer a few more. For me, there is only Lucas after Neymar and we do not want to sell.

"Why should we deprive ourselves? We do not need the money - the Brazilian economy is fine, the tv pay us and we cannot complain.

"Better to have a great player than cash in the bank."
