Lucas Moura is also being watched by Tottenham.
UNITED are closing in on Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura - after he was left out of the latest PSG squad - but the sticking point could be the fee.
Moura has already turned down a move to Claudio Ranieri's FC Nantes while Le Parisien claim he considers a move to any French club as a step backwards.
In case you didn't know..
The player supposedly is keen to leave Ligue 1, ruling out a move to Monaco or Lyon.
Following the overwhelming performances PSG showcased in the summer window, spending £202m on Neymar and being obliged to spend £166m for Mbappe next summer, the club faces the likelihood of UEFA sanctions.

However, in order to meet Financial Fair Play regulations, PSG will be hoping to squeeze as much as possible out of the Old Trafford club.
What started as a genuinely interesting story at the beginning of the week is beginning to lose credibility as the days go on - the IB times say that reports emanating from Brazil indicate that Lucas is not on his way to United at all.
The 25-year-old has made no secret of his desire to join the Red Devils in the past, admitting that he came close to signing for Sir Alex Ferguson's side in 2012.
Lucas Moura, at his best, can simply tear apart opposing defences with his pace, dribbling skills and trickery.
Moura could fit the bill with the Brazil worldwide likely to leave PSG in order to secure regular game time ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation later this year. Still supremely talented and yet to reach full potential, the Brazilian might just burst into life under the astute guidance of Jose Mourinho.
