Lucas Moura scored two goals for Tottenham Hotspur in their 3-0 win at Manchester United on Monday.
Both Jose Mourinho and Alex Ferguson wanted to sign Moura for United in past windows.
Ferguson pursued Moura in 2012 before Paris Saint-Germain outbid United.
in 2016, Lucas’ own agent Wagner Ribeiro revealed that Jose Mourinho was also showing an interest in signing him.
Ribeiro declared that Mourinho wanted his man while at Real Madrid, and carried his interest over to Old Trafford.
“Who called Lucas Moura there [to Real Madrid]? It wasn’t Florentino Perez who wanted Lucas Moura, it was Mourinho,” said Ribeiro.
