Sir Alex Ferguson says Manchester United are interested in Brazil international Lucas Moura.
Ferguson is keen to sign Sao Paulo midfielder Moura, 19, but the United manager denied a deal, reported to be ?26m, has been agreed.
?It?s not correct,? he told United?s official website.
?We haven?t reached an agreement for the player. We?ve shown an interest but until such time a we get a deal agreed we can?t say he?s our player.?
Moura is in Brazil?s Olympic squad and has attracted interest from other Premier League clubs, including Chelsea.
Ferguson has already signed two players, Japan midfielder Shinji Kagawa and Nick Powell from Crewe, since Manchester City won the Premier League on goal difference from United.
?At this moment we?re looking at other options in terms of bringing other players in,? Ferguson added at a news conference on Monday in Shanghai, China, where United are on tour ahead of the 2012-13 season.
?We?re not lying on our backsides doing nothing. We?re trying hard to bring other players to the club.?
