Paris Saint-Germain's attempt to generate income following last summer's spending spree could help Manchester United in January during its search for a winger.

The French side spent a world-record transfer fee to lure Neymar from Barcelona last summer before making another high-profile move to bring Kylian Mbappe to Paris.

Now, in an attempt to recoup some of the millions of Euros spent on high-priced acquisitions, PSG is believed to be willing to part ways with Lucas Moura, which could prompt Manchester United to make a move for the Brazilian winger, according to Jason Burt of The Telegraph.

Lucas is one of a number of players, including Angel Di Maria and Javier Pastore, who could depart the capital-city club, but there has apparently yet to be an offer made by United.

After starting 28 of PSG's 38 Ligue 1 matches last term, Lucas' opportunities have been drastically limited since the arrivals of Neymar and Mbappe. Manager Unai Emery has only used Lucas five times - all as a substitute - this season.

United is said to be eager to add a winger in January and could also make a move for Bordeaux youngster Malcom, 20, who's scored seven goals in 18 matches during his second full season in France.
