Man Utd, Liverpool among 5 clubs circling Flamengo for Lucas Paqueta

Flamengo are battling to ward off growing interest from Europe for midfielder Lucas Paqueta.

Manchester United have been linked with making an offer for the Brazilian, while Barcelona have also been mentioned as suitors.

Indeed, Le 10 Sport says PSG, FC Barcelona, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City are all in contact with Fla for Paqueta.

Fla vice-president Ricardo Lomba has stated in recent days they're reluctant to lose Paqueta in January, though previously has said they could cash in.

"If offers come - and I'm sure they will - the money from the transfer for Paquetá, which will then be paid in December, it will us allow to buy a player who can replace him in the new season.

"We already have plans to replace Paquetá," Lomba previously stated.
