Premier League side Manchester United are interested in Santos midfielder Lucas Lima, according to the player’s agent.

Lots of clubs in the top European leagues have reportedly been monitoring Lima following a strong campaign with Santos.

Lima’s agent Luccas Badia claims that the Brazilian’s contract situation, that ends on December 31, has alerted a number of top clubs around Europe.

“Inter, Roma and Barcelona are keeping close tabs on Lucas, Manchester United want him,” Badia told Haberturk.

“I think we would be well suited to the Serie A, but we will see.

“His contract ends on 31 December and there are many clubs interested but I am not sure what Santos is trying to do.

“Crystal Palace made a €15 million offer while Fenerbahce made a €20 million bid, but for some reason neither has been accepted.”
