Manchester United have approached Mexican side C.F. Pachuca over the availability of Hirving Lozano, club vice-president Andres Fassi has confirmed.
The 20-year-old forward has already broken through into Mexico’s national team and made six appearances in the Mexican Primera Division in 2015/16.
This is not the first we’ve heard about Lozano as back at the start of April, Pachuca club president Jesus Martinez revealed Man United had been scouting Lozano so the interest was previously established.
Speaking about Lozano’s future, Fassi told Record.mx: “There have been approaches (of Manchester United ) and also of many clubs and there will be a time to focus on the future of Hirving Lozano.
“Pachuca aims to keep its players unless it is very beneficial to the situation club. For several years, Pachuca has a great relationship with many teams of England, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy and in Germany. There are some agreements that allow the players to go to Europe in the future.”
Javier Hernandez’s success at United when he joined from Mexican side C.D. Guadalajara has clearly left foundations at United to keep tabs on promising talents from the Mexican league, even if South American import Angelo Henriquez from Chile didn’t quite work out as well.
United are certainly in need of at least one new striker this summer and even if Zlatan Ibrahimovic arrives, there will always be space for a talented 20-year-old in the squad. We’ll follow the Lozano story and any developments to do with it.
