Brazilian forward Lulinha has revealed that he was approached by a senior Manchester United 'director' and offered the chance to move to the Old Trafford club.

Lulinha revealed how the transfer would have been arranged and likened the would-be agreement to the ones United struck with young full-backs Rafael and Fabio da Silva who joined Sir Alex Ferguson's side in 2008 - around the same time Lulinha's transfer talks took place.



"Moreover, the champion would travel to England and I remember that the director of Manchester [United] came to my house, because at the time I had neither an academy nor a professional contract, and he went there so we could make a transfer to Manchester.



"Then I’d stay on that situation, I’d stay there for a while and come back here, because I was a minor – I was 15.

I’ve been working hard my whole life since I was seven years old at Corinthians and am I going out and not playing for the [senior team]?

He has opened up to UOL about his emergence in Brazil - where he was once considered one of the country's hottest young talents - and how a move to United nearly came about.

Lulinha, now, 29, has spent the majority of his career at Corinthians though recently played for Cypriot club Pafos and is now playing in the Japanese league with Jubilo Iwata.
