The race for Lucas Moura is heating up.

According to Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti, French club Paris Saint-Germain have thrown themselves into the mix for the 19-year-old midfielder. Moratti, whose club is keen on signing the midfielder, said PSG has offered Sao Paulo a bid worth an estimated $55.9 million for the Brazilian international, who is considered one of the brightest young prospects in world soccer.

Lucas Moura has been linked with a number of top clubs in Europe in recent weeks, including Manchester United, Chelsea and Inter Milan. He is currently with the Brazilian Olympic team in London that is still fighting for gold.

Here are more stories from Monday:

REVOLUTION, MORENO PART WAYS

Less than six months after joining the team, Jose Moreno was waived by the New England Revolution on Monday. The 30-year-old made seven appearances for New England and scored once this season. His last appearance for the club came on June 16, when he played 45 minutes before suffering an ankle knock.

MODRIC PRICE STILL NOT MET

If Luka Modric is to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer, a higher bid will need to come in. Spurs head coach Andre Villas-Boas said the asking price for Modric has not yet been met by any of the interested parties, and that he expects the Croatian international to return to training with Tottenham in the near future. The 26-year-old Modric has being linked with several teams in recent weeks, including Real Madrid.

FLETCHER TO CONTINUE RECOVERY BY TRAINING WITH SCOTLAND

Darren Fletcher's return to Manchester United appears to be looming, as he is set to train with Scotland's national team in the coming days. Scotland manager Craig Levein said the 28-year-old midfielder would train with his team beginning this weekend as they prepare for a friendly match against Australia on August 15. Fletcher has been out of action for both club and country since last November with a chronic bowel problem.
