Sao Paulo vice-president Joao Paulo de Jesus Lopes says they could still agree a fee with Manchester United over the sale of Lucas Moura. Lopes insists the door is not closed to Barclays Premier League outfit.

He told Radio Estadao ESPN: "I don't rule out the possibility that in the future there are some sort of negotiations, because we received Manchester [United] with great courtesy and left open the possibility of more talks.

"Manchester [United] came to us and their approach was serious. Other teams expressed an interest for Lucas, but only through the media in their countries."
