Thiago Silva confirms that Paris Saint-Germain are in talks with Manchester United target and Sao Paulo midfielder Lucas Moura.

Paris Saint-German defender Thiago Silva has revealed that the French outfit are in talks with Sao Paulo over the signing of Lucas Moura.

The Brazilian playmaker, who has been competing with Brazil in the Olympics in London, was initially heavily linked with a £30m switch to Manchester United.

Inter Milan were also thought to be in the running for the 19-year-old's signature. However, the Serie A side have recently cooled their interest in the youngster.

"I spoke with Lucas last week, when I saw that something was out in the press," Silva told Mundo Deportivo.

"I know they are talking, there are negotiations, and I hope he will sign for PSG. I know that the PSG and Sao Paulo are talking about it. I would be happy if the guy came to us at the end."

Moura has been playing for Sao Paulo since 2005.
