Rafael: Lucas should sign with United
Manchester United defender Rafael da Silva
Teenage midfielder Lucas is one of world football's most coveted talents and has reportedly been the subject of an offer from the Red Devils.
His current club Sao Paulo claim to have turned down a bid of 35million euros (£27million) for the 19-year-old, who is also a target for Inter Milan.
Lucas is presently part of Brazil's squad for the Olympics, alongside Rafael, and it appears the two have spoken about the chance to sign for United.
Full-back Rafael said in the Daily Star Sunday: "Yes, I have told Lucas he should come to Manchester United, of course."
And, when asked whether Lucas was excited about coming to United, Rafael replied: "Yes, yes!"
