Inter to challenge Chelsea for Lucas Moura.
Inter Milan are attempting to make a late move to challenge Chelsea and Real Madrid for the signature of young Brazilian Lucas Moura.
Moura is rated as one of the best young players in South America and has been heavily linked with moves to Chelsea and Madrid.
According to reports in Spain, Real Madrid are closest to signing the wonder kid and hope to unveil him at the beginning of July. Chelsea have also been watching the 19-year-old and are not set to give up on him just yet.
The attacking midfielder has been earning top reviews for his club Sao Paulo and was one of the top performers for Brazil in the recent clash with Argentina. It was suggested to be a straight battle between Chelsea and Madrid, but reports now think Inter are making plans to sign the youngster.
Inter manager Andrea Stramaccioni is a huge admirer of the midfielder and is keen to bring in some fresh faces for a change around next season. Moura is renowned for his ability to beat defenders and his skills on the ball.
