Now, according to UOL, Moura has chosen Manchester United, who after contacting intermediaries perhaps promised that they will make a proposal to sign him. The IB Times say that Sao Paulo's interest collapsed when they were informed of Paris' intentions to get a relatively big fee for Lucas.
Here's how Mourinho's men could line up with the 25-year-old in the side.
Traoré, who began training at Carrington after leaving Paris Saint-Germain during the summer, officially became a United youth player last month.
The Brazil global is, hence, looking for greener pastures, as he covets to get as much game-time as possible in the hopes of getting elected for this summer's World Cup.

Women will also be allowed to attend a match on Saturday in the capital Riyadh and on January 18 in the eastern city of Dammam. The rest of the country's football grounds will be ready for female fans by the beginning of the next sporting season.
Lucas and Larissa now have a two-month old daughter and the latter's hesitance to uproot her family from Paris could signal disaster for Lucas and United over regular playing time and a successful transfer respectively.
The French giants want £35.5million for the Brazilian - and ditched him for the Wednesday night cup win over Amiens - but United are believed to be ready to offer half that.
Moura would be an impressive addition for Spurs - the Le 10 Sport report suggests that the London side are not interested in buying him but have made their interest in a loan deal known.
Meanwhile, after recently turning 17-years-old, has signed his first professional contract with United.
A move away from Paris Saint-Germain is not only the best move for Moura, but also for the club.
