Sao Paulo have reportedly rejected a £30million bid from Manchester United for Lucas Moura.

The 19-year old Brazilian attacking midfielder has been a target for the Red Devils in recent months but it is believed that the interest may now be dropped after Sao Paulo rejected the latest offer.

Globo esporte reports that a bid close to the aforementioned amount was tabled today but Sao Paulo are not prepared to sell at this stage with United boss Sir Alex Ferguson set to pull his attentiveness towards one of South America's hottest prospects.
